Work for FOCUS

We are so glad you want to explore staff positions with FOCUS. Here’s a little about what it’s like to work for us: “on the ground” with students in the areas or “behind the scenes” with our National Ministry.

Each Local Area Ministry consists of an Area Director who is responsible for the region, Field Staff who support the Area Director in their shared work with students, and a team of volunteers who serve as leaders or as members of the Area Sponsoring Committee. It’s a team effort, with the goal of helping students to explore Christian faith together. This happens through large and small group meetings and coming alongside individual students at sporting events, over a meal, or sharing a cup of coffee.

Our National Ministry contributes proactive expertise in human resources, training, communications, database management, and financial oversight for our local areas. In addition, we direct, host, and support National Programs, including Summer Programs that are primarily held at the FOCUS Study Center on Martha’s Vineyard.
