Project Power

Sticking closer to our geographic home base, Focus America's newest program, Project Power, focuses on building and expanding the self-esteem, fitness and abilities of young children through the promotion of athletic programs. Focus America has partnered with two local organizations to provide children in need the opportunity to participate in programs that, otherwise, would be financially unobtainable.

EQUESTRIAN SKILLS: In conjunction with Seaton Hackney Stables, Focus America is sending underprivileged children to summer camp in Morristown as well as fall and spring troop riding programs. Together, Focus America and Seaton Hackney Stables are providing children with the athletic opportunities to build their minds, bodies, and confidence. The experience of horseback riding is life-changing to many of these children and makes a huge difference in their lives.

GYMNASTICS: In conjunction with Rettigs Gymnastics Team Parent Association (RGTPA), Focus America is providing funding to support the gymnastics training, coaching, competition expenses and travel fees as past of the Junior Olympics program. Based in Cedar Knolls, Rettig’s Gymnastics has been working with gymnasts for over 15 years. The Focus America sponsors provide these young girls, ages 7 to 18, much more then the intense skills of gymnastics. Gymnastics overall encourages discipline, self-esteem, physical fitness, and determination.

The gymnasts training hours are intense and can range from 8 to 20 hours a week. The gymnasts learn that their individual abilities and dedication to the team are the foundation to their success. These are all important attributes for any young woman to succeed in today's world. The expense of participating in the various gymnastic events is often too much for families to afford and, therefore, Focus America is pleased to be a part of this effort to find community-minded corporations to assist in providing financial assistance to fund this program
