Equipping young people with the tangible skills they need to be productive members of their communities.
Our Workforce Academy is designed to provide teens with all the tangible skills they need to be productive leaders in their communities. Resume building, interviewing, job etiquette, and finally job placement are the key components in our Workforce Academy program.
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.
