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.


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


All projects are designed to develop personal relationships between FOCUS, overseas partners and students.


Our mandate is to provide preeminent training for teams of students with the goal of a thriving team fully engaged in serving the overseas partner.

Our Work Happens By:


FOCUS provides world-class training. Our simulation-based (experiential) training prepares students to be productive, effective and contagious engaging with their peers in different cultures.


FOCUS provides viable opportunities for students to serve through connecting stateside partners with the field team that best fits their values.


Our primary focus of training is to elevate the effectiveness of our friends overseas.


The “FOCUS Family” is comprised of volunteers, donors, field partners, stateside partners and alumni who have a heart to see laborers trained and sent.
