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.” Virginia’s Region 2000 Technology Council, a partner organization in Virginia’s Region 2000 Partnership, 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. Today, growth in the need for the Future Focus Foundation services and programs have resulted in the Technology Council hiring a Managing Director to guide the foundation in supporting and expanding existing programs while strategically constructing new opportunities based on the needs of educators, students, and industry.
