Developed in partnership with the Dallas Regional Chamber, the Future Focus Camp serves 60 Dallas area high school students for two weeks each June. During this annual, all-day camp experience, students will be guided through job readiness content, learn from guest speakers, engage in small group work and panel discussions and earn community service hours.
