National Program Volunteers

ABOUT

National Program Volunteering

Each of our programs, regardless of location, depend on volunteers who will join FOCUS staff to give shape and content to the work with students. Members of each program's volunteer leadership team have a variety of roles, up front or behind the scenes, but all will work directly with students, especially as part of small groups for discussion and activities. Please note that all volunteers must have graduated high school and turn 18 years of age within the same year they are leading. For most programs, volunteers must have completed at least their freshman year of college.
