What Is FOCUS?

If you check out our Local Areas and National Programs, you’ll get a good feel for the awesome experiences and friendships FOCUS offers. Most of all, we want you to know this is a safe place to bring your curiosity and questions. We have no expectations about where you’re coming from – spiritually or otherwise. Our staff and volunteers want to get to know you and be a resource for you, as you navigate the challenges of life and its biggest questions: Who am I? What do I believe? How does what I believe impact who I am?

National Programs

Most of our week-long Summer Programs are hosted at our 30-acre Study Center. on the beautiful island of Martha’s Vineyard. Mornings begin with a delicious breakfast that launches students into an action-packed day of classic games, sailing, hiking, trips to town or the beach, bike rides, and relaxing with new friends on the property. All this fun is interspersed with times of teaching, discussion, and reflection about life and faith.
