"Finding Ourselves Creates Unlimited Success"
To provide innovative educational and recreational activities for youth and their families centered around wellness and nutrition education, character development, and college and career readiness.
The FOCUS Youth Network was created to "bridge the gap between education and opportunity"; what kids LEARN on a daily basis, and what they can DO. We take kids from learning about music, to experiencing a musical; from learning about geography to taking a camping trip. We believe that "providing our youth with extraordinary experiences, will produce extraordinary individuals."
Through a variety of programs, we instill skills and values that last a lifetime. The FOCUS Youth Network helps youth to realize that all they need is a little bit of FOCUS because “Finding Ourselves Creates Unlimited Success”.
F.O.C.U.S. YOUTH NETWORK
Our innovative programs give young people a chance to do things they have never done before while learning skills they never learned. Our belief is that the more opportunities you provide to young people to try new things, the more value they can offer to this world through their experiences.

Providing our youth with memories that last a lifetime.
F.O.C.U.S. Youth Network believes that "providing our youth with extraordinary experiences will produce extraordinary individuals". As urban areas begin to increase in size, access to green space is decreasing. Through adventure trips such as white-water rafting, and indoor rock climbing, members are able to take part in activities that promote self-esteem and good physical health.
