FOCUS Greater Washington Area

Welcome to FOCUS in the Greater Washington Area.  FOCUS works with independent school students all along the East Coast, and specifically here in Northern Virginia, Maryland, and Northwest Washington.  Through both on-campus and off-campus meetings, monthly hang-out nights, community service trips, and national summer and winter programs, Greater Washington FOCUS seeks to provide students with a community of mentors and peers who encourage one another to ask important questions about life.  For more information about events near you, please contact gwa@infocus.org
