The FUNdamentals Scholarship is a pilot effort within the UWPC. According to the Arizona Youth Survey our youth chooses to use drugs as a way to self- medicate because of an inability to cope with stress. Teaching youth other ways of stress management at an early age can help increase their coping skills and possibly reduce their need for self- medication.

Despite being the largest population hub of Pinal County, San Tan Valley has no city government to help foster and promote after school clubs or activities. Many families aren't able to fund these enrichment actvities due to financial hardship. Through our partners and our scholarship fund, we are able to help families get their kids into extra-curricular activities. This allows children to continue to discover who they are while exploring the world around them. To make a monetary investment into the scholarship fund click here.
