Apply to be a FOCUS 2024 Leader/Support Crew!

FOCUS on New Haven is looking for group leaders and support crew members for its 2024 program! Our first-years and STEP (sophomores, transfers, and Eli Whitney participants) volunteer with local community organizations, take part in discussions/events about how systems of oppression/gentrification/policing/etc. play out in New Haven, and learn together how to be active participants in the city while imagining just futures with our neighbors.

We’re looking for leaders and support crew members who have interest in or experience with community engagement, and who are eager to engage in discussions around social justice, university-city relations, the power dynamics of service, and welcome the newest generation of changemakers to Yale and New Haven.

If you are interested in being a 2024 FOCUS Leader or a FOCUS Support Crew member, please fill out this form by 11:59 pm ET on March 1. Feel free to leave any comments or questions at the end of the form, or in an email to
