Future Focus Camp

Change the Lives of Students

Understanding options after high school graduation can be overwhelming, but through the DRC’s and United Way of Metropolitan Dallas’ two-week Future Focus Camp, current sophomores and juniors can gain the skills they need to succeed after high school. Students will participate in workshops and take field trips while interacting with local business people to explore different companies.

From facilitating group projects with five to 10 students to conducting one-on-one mock interviews, volunteers at the DRC’s two-week Future Focus Camp are the largest assets in shaping today’s students for tomorrow’s workforce.

With your sharing your expertise and real-world experience, juniors and seniors students leave Future Focus Camp with sharper skills in:

  • Professionalism;
  • Resume writing;
  • Interviewing;
  • Team building;
  • Time management;
  • Creative thinking;
  • Technology;
  • And more.

Future Focus Camp 2016 was a huge success! At this year’s outstanding two-week session, high school juniors and seniors gained the skills and knowledge they need to take the next big steps when they graduate.
