stay-focused is a Nonprofit Organization That Offers Scuba Diving Experiences to Teens and Young Adults with Disabilities at Whatever Level They Can Achieve.

Stay-focused Offers a Unique, Transformational Learning Experience to Teens and Young Adults with Disabilities. Through a Scuba Diving Certification Program, Participants Gain Confidence, Develop Leadership Skills, Become More Independent, and Join the Stay-focused Community. Participants Learn to Challenge Themselves, Set Higher Goals, and Form Long-term Friendships. Stay-focused is Committed to Supporting Medical Research That Explores the Beneficial Aspects of Diving on Persons with Mobility Challenges.

Beyond Learning to Dive and the Educational Value of the Stay-focused Experience, One of the Primary Goals of Stay-focused is to Maintain Lifelong Connections with the Teens and Young Adults Who Participate in the Program. Participants in the Program Become Alumni of Stay-focused and Will Always Be Part of the Stay-focused Network.

Each Participant is Offered the Opportunity to Return to Grand Cayman One Year After the First Trip to Participate in a Second Week of Diving and Workshops. These "reunion" Trips Enable Divers to Refresh Their Diving Skills and Help Reinforce Lessons-learned During the First Trip, Including Overcoming Challenges and Setting Realistic, Achievable Personal Goals.
