Project FOCUS Crowdfunding 2022


Over the past 11 years, Project FOCUS has provided an opportunity for 92 students with intellectual and developmental disabilities to:


Access Inclusive College Classes: in-person, hybrid and fully online 


Increase Employability Skills: internships experience and career readiness curriculum 


Develop Social Networks: communication and connection that build lifelong friendships


We are ecstatic to be on campus this year with 17 students and 38 peer mentors for a fully inclusive college experience for the 2022-2023 school year! 


Project FOCUS enhances the diversity and richness of life at UArizona and we are asking for your support to continue this important work. Your gift will directly impact our students, peer mentors and the entire Wildcat community.
