– THE PROMISE –
SAFETY, COMPASSION, RESPECT
Children who struggle in the conventional education model, require a safe and compassionate environment in which to learn and grow. Our community respects and encourages each person’s uniqueness and provides them with the opportunity to build their resources and develop new skills.

– OUR STORIES –
TRANSFORMING YOUNG LIVES
For years we have helped youth struggling with learning challenges and witnessed their triumph over life circumstances. Their transformation is profound and their stories compelling. They are proof that one can succeed despite overwhelming obstacles if placed in the right soil and allowed to grow out of their problems.

Be a Part of Real Change
The youth we work with are at a critical point in their lives when positive change can alter the trajectory of their lives forever. This is a huge responsibility but also an amazing opportunity to provide hope. Let’s make access to success a reality – now.
Dedicated to transforming young lives
We believe that every child should have access to education and the opportunity for success in life. For almost 20% of youth in British Columbia, this is an enormous challenge due to mental and emotional health, behavioral issues or family circumstances. They simply don’t fit the conventional school model and our education system struggles to provide them with the necessary environment to learn and grow – and succeed.
Focus Foundation was formed in 1975 as a non-profit society advocating for vulnerable youth and their families through its support of Whytecliff Learning Centres. We are dedicated to transforming young lives through access to education, because we believe that no child, regardless of their circumstance, is an acceptable loss.
Focus Foundation is a charitable organization, supporting programs for at risk youth through our Whytecliff Learning Centres.
