Future Focus Camp

Future Focus Camp provides soon-to-be North Texas graduates with college and career exploration that helps them identify their next steps. Developed in partnership with the Dallas Regional Chamber and Accenture, the program serves 60 Dallas area high school students for two weeks each June.

During the all-day camp experience, students are guided through job readiness content, learn from guest speakers, engage in small group work and panel discussions, tour a local college campus and earn community service hours.

On five of the 10 program days, students attend field trips to corporate headquarters throughout North Texas where they see the vast array of jobs available in various industries and discover the real-world importance of skills they are developing.
