About Future N Focus

Future N Focus is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to guiding youth on their journey to discovering a career path and creating an action plan for their lives. The goal is much more than workforce development, but the development of successful citizens who enjoy the work they do and careers they choose.

The Future N Focus Approach

At Future N Focus our approach is what sets us apart. Our innovative career development curriculum delves into the core—an individual’s “purpose” in life and their true passions. We believe in going beyond generalized personality assessments. Instead, we focus on each student as an individual.

Our research shows students from middle school to high school exhibit the ability to comprehend having a life and career purpose. If cultivated correctly, this age group is capable of identifying their purpose and planning to live out that purpose. Future N Focus provides a unique and effective career development curriculum that helps students:

  • Explore and discover their purpose
  • Set purpose-driven goals
  • Identify career choices
  • Create life plans

OUR MISSION

Future N Focus’ mission is to aid youth in early discovery of a career path, and provide the tried and proven tools and principles necessary to execute any career goal.

By carrying out our mission of helping youth with early discovery of career paths and executing their goals, Future N Focus will reach its vision of minimizing the number of students graduating from high school and college every year with an education, but no vision of who they are or where they are going in life. No Foreseeable Future (NFF) in other words. Future N Focus’ vision is to also become front runners in the Purpose Driven Educational (PDE) movement. This is where students are all taught a baseline of knowledge and then chooses the career path they wish to travel and are educated accordingly. Future N Focus believes that the batch learning model (one size fits all education) instituted in the early 1900’s is obsolete and change is imminent. Future N Focus is an integral part of that change.

CHANGING PERCEPTIONS. CHANGING LIVES

COMMON CORE

Common Core Aligned

Future N Focus is specific and deliberate in the way in which it provides content that is in compliance with Common Core Standards.

Our goals are identical to that of the Common Core: to ensure that students graduating from high school are prepared to take credit bearing introductory courses in two- or four-year college programs or enter the workforce.

The Dream Catcher curriculum specializes in sharpening students’ ability to navigate various career pathways by leading students to discover their purpose. Upon discovering their purpose, students are better equipped to decide on a purpose-driven career that translates into true success.

Dream Catcher curriculum features the following Common Core Standards.

RI Reading Standards for Informational Text 6–12
W riting
RL Reading Standards for Literature 6-12
L anguage
SL Speaking And Listening Standards

Each Dream Catcher lesson is properly labeled with highly visible Common Core Standards for reference. Using Purpose as a method of helping students navigate a career path breeds Intrinsic Motivation within the student. Intrinsic Motivation changes the outlook the students have on Why they are learning and makes their learning experience relative to their desired outcome.

Future N Focus believes that the method of Purpose-Driven Education will be the key to achieving Common Core Standards goals in the context of college and career readiness.

Future N Focus promotes the real-world workplace skills including 21st century skills of collaboration and communication, critical thinking and problem solving and career exploration and planning.
