Kevin Khy has been with Summer Springboard almost from its inception seven years ago, but he has almost a decade of Terra Education under his belt. Before heading up Admissions at Summer Springboard, Kevin spent several years with Global Leadership Adventures, first joining their Admissions team in San Diego and later leading Terra’s internship program in Costa Rica in 2016.

“The mission of GLA really resonated with me and while going through the interview process I realized that the company culture was exactly what I was looking for. It was an incredible experience to work with a team that was truly mission driven, everyone was so positive and great I couldn’t have asked for a better team to collaborate with. Naturally, when I was approached to join the Summer Springboard team, I jumped at the chance to join a new segment of Terra Education and have the opportunity to grow with it,” he says.


Q. If you had to name one, what’s your favorite part about working for SSB/Terra Education?

A. My favorite part of working for Summer Springboard is seeing our mission in action each summer. We start preparing for our programs in September all the way through June, with all of our hard work culminating in 8 weeks worth of impactful experiences for thousands of students. I’ve had the benefit of serving as a Campus Director for several summers, and to me seeing the growth of our students first-hand and having students and parents reach out to me years later is irreplaceable.


Q. Best memory from last summer?

A. I spent a short period of time at our Duke University campus and had an opportunity to see a “smaller” program; and seeing that close-knit familial atmosphere was a bit of a transformational experience for me, having spent so many summers in our other campus sessions with more than 100 students. It allowed me to appreciate the unique experience that comes with smaller sessions. It was great to be on a campus for a short period of time and be on a first name basis with most of the students!


Q. When you’re not at work, what hobbies do you enjoy?

A. When not at work I enjoy the outdoors: Camping, off-roading, etc. I find long drives very therapeutic! In 2022 I completed the Mojave trail with a friend; this is the longest offroad trail in the U.S. at over 140 miles long! I also have my first baby due in April and look forward to the new adventures of fatherhood!
