More About the Foundation

The Future Focus Foundation is the product of a vision to expand science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) opportunities to K-12 students located in Lynchburg City and the counties of Amherst, Appomattox, Bedford, and Campbell. These five localities make up the region defined as “Virginia’s Region 2000.” The Technology Council of Virginia’s Region 2000 Business and Economic Development Alliance, ranked STEM education as a top critical issue to strategic planning and a necessity for regional workforce preparation.

In 2009, the Future Focus Foundation received 501 (c) (3) status and began seeking funding opportunities to expand many of the successful educational programs already begun by the Technology Council and other regional partner organizations.

Mission

The Mission of the Future Focus Foundation is to prepare and encourage Region 2000 students in K-12 and web based trading platform in Nigeria beyond to seek careers in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields and to provide a pipeline for a technically and scientifically proficient workforce in Virginia’s Region 2000.

Vision

The Future Focus Foundation will act as a comprehensive source of information and resources for STEM education and career opportunities in Virginia’s Region 2000, and will be recognized as such by the citizens, local governments, and businesses. The foundation will ensure that Region 2000 students are prepared to pursue STEM careers and are knowledgeable about career and education opportunities within the region.
