Teen Focus Inc
building a community where all youth are safe, loved, strong & valued
Teen Focus Inc. is a nationally recognized 501 (c)(3) organization.
Our organization was originally founded as an after-school program called Teen Focus Inc, in Dec. 1999 – 2007. Dr. Scott relaunched the program as a non-profit in 2015.
Dr. Scott’s passion and drive comes from helping teens reach their true potential. As a school counselor and motivational coach, she makes it her business to guide her students and clients towards personal success, self-fulfillment and emotional well-being. Dr. Kim’s primary motivators stem from her family members and the Lord up above. Despite the numerous tragedies that Dr. Scott has endured throughout her lifetime, she has continued to pay it forward by being a trailblazer for teens in need.
Simply put, at Teen Focus Inc, we are here to develop a support system for at-risk teens ages 10-18 yrs old. Our focus is to promote lifelong personal growth, help them overcome childhood traumas that may be holding them back, and to create in these youth a sincere belief in themselves through life skills coaching, mentorship, counseling, and vocational training and preparedness.

WHO WE SERVE
Serving at risk pre-teens, teens, and young adults ages 10-18yrs old in the Inland Empire area who are eager to create a positive change in their lives in hopes of a better tomorrow.
I suffer from social anxiety due to severe bullying when I was in the 5th grade. I don’t participate in any group activities because I just know I am not going to belong.
I’ve been in the system since I was 7yrs old. I’ve suffered through severe physical abuse for the last six years all while bouncing from group home to multiple foster homes.
I am currently a senior in high school, and I make pretty good grades. But I have no idea what lies ahead for me after graduation. Where do I go from here?
