Future Focus is an in-school program based in Orlando, Florida that offers creative, evidence-based, innovative, and alternative opportunities for youth to achieve academic success. We see students as people first, following a holistic approach to education by considering their personal strengths, challenges, and circumstances. Our 5 pillars; Compassion, Education, Collaboration, Empowerment, and Accountability, uphold every effort we strive for.
Working with fellow staff and stakeholders, Future Focus is a dynamic support system serving students. Our mission is to develop successful and thriving youth by giving them the tools to:
Find their purpose (in their lives, family, community and the world)
Change their perspective (on their lives and future)
Pursue their dreams (relentlessly and strategically)
By engaging our youth through programs and mentorship, our goal is to equip them to be forward-thinking and compassionate leaders of tomorrow.
We genuinely care about the lives of every person we come in contact with and serve with a compassion first attitude. We make every effort to be empathetic and kind to others and ourselves. We strive do everything we can, when we can to help improve the well-being of those we serve.
We are passionate about the educational success of the youth we serve. We seek to offer creative, evidence-based, innovative and alternative opportunities for youth to achieve academic success.
We seek authentic, healthy and active relationships with parents, students and community leaders. We are intentionally diverse and inclusive so that we can effectively meet the needs of the communities we serve.
We advocate for youth to be seen, heard and to address the issues that impact their daily lives. We invest in the safety and holistic well-being of those we serve and ourselves so that we live transformative, fulfilling and successful lives.
