OUR THREE PILLARS
The foundation of our work is based on supporting our community in doing what we call, "Living a Lifetime of Wellness", taking control of your physical, mental, and social well-being.
WELLNESS AND NUTRITION EDUCATION
The Health and Wellness of our youth is paramount in our mission. Through fun and engaging cooking classes such as "Cooking with Coach", family fitness classes, and Family Fun and Fitness Day, we are able to equip our youth and their families with the skills they need to do what we call, "Living a Lifetime of Wellness".
F.O.C.U.S. Youth Network empowers youth in the Delaware Valley to reach their fullest potential through a wide range of programs and services. We care about our young people, and always strive to provide them with a number of enrichment programs to help shape their identity. With programs such as #GroundLevelImpact, our community service group, Youth UnCut, "a show that gives youth a voice and an opportunity to discuss the things that mean most to them", to our robust community service programs, B.R.O.T.H.E.R.S. program, and our annual FOCUS Youth Summit and Fashion Show, youth of all ages have the opportunity to develop a strong identity and build a sense of self-esteem and self-efficacy.
CAREER AND COLLEGE READINESS
The F.O.C.U.S. Youth Network believes in providing opportunities for every young person to pursue their dreams passionately, whether it be via college, trade, workforce, or entrepreneurship. Programs such as our Workforce Academy, which provides high school students with job training and tangible work experience, FOCUS Futures Academy, which helps youth solve problems in their communities by creating a product or service, as well as our "Buchanan Family Scholarship" give young people a head start on achieving their post-secondary goals and moving closer to their dreams.
