Who We Are

A global family who wants to train the next generation of students to make a difference in the world.

Our Mission & Core Values –

Our mission is to train and mobilize the next generation of qualified students to help make a difference in the world.

For more than twenty years, FOCUS International has served to introduce collegiates in the US to people overseas who believe that college and university students are an integral part of helping to change the world. FOCUS provides experiential training to students and recent graduates who want to make a difference in the lives of men and women who live in some of the most difficult places in the world.

We do not accomplish this alone. We have a family of partners, supporters and volunteers who believe in the next generation of world changers.

TEAM

All projects are team projects with recognized and trained team leaders. We also operate as global team to see our mission fulfilled.

TRAIN
