What is Team Focus?

Dear Parent/Guardian:

Team Focus is a year-round mentoring program for young men ages 10 to 18 who have no father figure in their life or the father or stepfather has minimal contact with your young man.

Team Focus originated in Mobile, Alabama in 2000 by founders Mike and Mickey Gottfried. Since then, Team Focus has grown to serve over 5,000 fatherless young men all over the country. Team Focus conducts Leadership Camps as well as activities and mentoring services throughout the school year to encourage young men to grow into their God-given destinies as leaders. Team Focus is not for at-risk young men, but for young men with positive leadership potential.

This application is for the custodial Parent/Guardian to complete. On page nine (9) of the application there is a section for the child/Team Focus applicant to write why he wants to be a part of Team Focus.


All lines and all pages of the application must be completed. 

Once we receive your child's completed application along with a photo and a copy of his most recent report card, you will be contacted by the director of that chapter.

Thank you for your interest and cooperation in completing the attached application. If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact us.
