What students say about Young Focus
Young Focus is my mom’s partner in supporting my studies to achieve my goal in life. Young Focus enhances my knowledge through tutorials and it teaches me to be a good example to everyone. I am very thankful to be part of this sponsorship program. They treat me as family and all the staff are approachable.
Young Focus are like my second family and my second home. They teach me a lot of things and how life could be, and for me I would be nothing without Young Focus. They boost my self-confidence to face my fears and other people.
Young Focus has a lot of roles in my life. For example, it is supporting me in my studies, supplies my needs, and is always there to give me advice. And the most important thing is that Young Focus is the way to reach my dreams. Young Focus has never let me solve my problems alone, and is always there to comfort me every time I feel down. In Young Focus I’ve learned a lot of things, and Young Focus has become my teacher and my family to support me as I study. Thank you for supporting me no matter what.
Young Focus has played a big role in my life. If it wasn’t for Young Focus, I might have stopped going to school and I might not be able to go to college. The staff persuade you to study hard and make your studies a priority, rather than a romantic relationship.
