The Usos Foundation, founded by WWE Hall of Famer Afa "The Wild Samoan" Anoa'i and his wife Lynn Anoa’i, helps turn around the lives of at risk and financially disadvantaged youth, offering them life and career skills by utilizing what they know more about than just about anyone else, professional wrestling.
Thank you for visiting the online home of the Usos Foundation, Inc.! Usos Foundation is a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit that focuses on changing the lives of at-risk and wayward young men and women. It gets them away from the streets, away from drugs, gangs, negativity, broken homes, etc. and gives scholarships to the world-renowned Wild Samoan Pro-Wrestling Training Center, where they learn structure, guidance, discipline, trust, camaraderie, the mind-body-spirit connection, exercise, valuable career-building and entrepreneurial skills, and much more. Usos Foundation depends entirely on donations and fundraising efforts. However, it can't be a success without the help of the community and word being spread everywhere. Donation are always very greatly appreciated. No amount is too small, and every little bit helps! Usos Foundation also helps young people live their dreams. It's not JUST for wayward and at-risk youths! Usos is all about opportunity, encouragement, giving young hopefuls with little chance or direction a place to fulfill their dreams.

My name is Noah Carragher, I am from Lake County, Florida, where I have lived my whole life. I am 14 years old. I got into wrestling as a little kid by watching it on TV. Then, after a while, I decided that I wanted to be a wrestler. My mom took me to a Friday Night Smackdown show in Orlando. There were two guys in front of us and they had WXW shirts on. We started talking to them, and they said their names were Gary and Cliff. They said they were training to be a wrestler and referee, and that we should go to one of their shows. When we got home that night, I looked up the WXW website.
My parents started taking me to the shows and I loved it. After I went to some of the shows for a while, Miss Lynn, Pops, and Miss Vale announced that they were having a Summer Camp for the younger kids who loved wrestling and wanted to wrestle. So I went and I loved it. Then they announced that they were going to have an after school program. So I got my mom to sign me up.
