Kids in Focus strongly believes in staying connected with alumni kids, who have been through one of our programs. The alumni program, Grads in Focus, provides continuing projects to keep the kids connected to their mentors, each other, themselves, and the exciting new world they’ve discovered. We also have a private online forum for the Grads in Focus. It’s a place for mentors and student alumni to support one another and share their work on a daily basis. Not only do the kids earn incentive gifts that encourage participation, they have a sense of belonging that encourages them to continue spending time in a positive way — to get outside and explore. Team-building field trips are held each quarter, giving the kids something to look forward to and a chance to see their mentors and fellow students again.
