The Facilitated Outreach for Community and University Success (FOCUS) Group is comprised of three areas: TRIO Upward Bound, School-Based Outreach and the National Youth Sports Program. These programs, funded by county, state and federal grants, foundations, and personal donations, encourage connections between Case Western Reserve University and the Cleveland community, providing youth and families access to academic assistance, life skills training, counseling, nutrition education, and college preparation and advising. These programs enhance both university and community relations.
