We empower teens with disabilities through SCUBA certification and leadership development programs

From the moment they enter the water, Stay-Focused participants experience a world without limitations. For most participants, SCUBA diving offers a level of independence unattainable in their daily lives, providing freedom of movement without the help of adaptive equipment. Leadership development programs taught by a distinguished group of corporate and community leaders further encourage participants to translate this newfound freedom into their daily lives, giving them the confidence to pursue their greatest ambitions.

Photos and Video: In July/August 2018, we were fortunate to have the support of talented photographers/videographers whose images appear throughout our recently-updated website. Many thanks to Sean Crothers and Elly Wray (elly@ellywray.com), Richard Apple (ApplecorpsPhotography.com), and Jim Gates (info@bds.ky)


All funds raised directly benefit the teens and young adults with disabilities who participate in Stay-Focused certification and leadership development programs. Contributions at any level will be most appreciated.

Stay-Focused is a registered 501(c)(3) public charity. Contributions in the United States are fully tax-deductible to the extent allowable by law.
