Future Focus

The Future Focus program is a classroom-based curriculum designed to promote positive decision making among junior high school students. Trained volunteer presenters offer interactive programming to help students realize that educational attainment today has lasting impacts on their options later in life. It is meant to empower students that they have control over their daily decisions, as small as completing their homework and attending class, which can keep them on track for high school graduation and beyond over time.  

Counselors and teachers from area junior high schools partner with Education for Tomorrow Alliance staff members to offer Future Focus programming that is relevant to their students. In some schools, volunteers offer a 50-minute curriculum that helps students set goals, while in others volunteers participate in career panels or mock interviews. Training is available to support volunteers in each role.
