ABOUT US

"Finding Ourselves Creates Unlimited Success"

 FOCUS specializes in providing constructive recreational and educational opportunities for youth of all ages who are dedicated to being a complete person and a contributing member to today’s society.


The FOCUS Youth Network started as an idea from a class in college by our Founder and Executive Director, Devon Buchanan in 2005, and is now reality.  In today’s society, a significant amount of pressure is placed on teens to “be someone”, but not enough emphasis is placed on providing the opportunity to find out who they are. The FOCUS Youth Network provides that opportunity.  It is a place where teens recognize skills and interests, build character, values, as well as lasting friendships.  


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”.

OUR FOUNDER

Coach Devon Buchanan, M.Ed

Devon L. Buchanan, affectionately known as "Coach" by anyone who has met him, is a native of Philadelphia and a long time educator and administrator in the Philadelphia School District. 
With a strong belief in the benefit of quality enrichment programs, Coach has dedicated his life to equipping youth with the skills they need to pursue their goals and dreams and make a massive impact on their community.  

"The FOCUS Youth Network was created for all kids, but specifically, the underdog.  We want the kid who wants to try everything or doesn't want to try anything.  I truly believe that if you provide young people with extraordinary experiences, you will produce extraordinary individuals".
