Where Does The Money Go

All money raised by Usos Foundation goes into the foundation to offer scholarships to at-risk youth and to cover the facility rent and operating expenses. None of the board members or administration is paid, all are volunteers.

What Does the Scholarship program offer?

In addition to learning top-of-the-line skills in the sport of wrestling and self defense, the program will provide the youth with various traits and skills in other areas which include: self-esteem, the mind-body-spirit connection, public relations, experience in filming, photography, editing, journalism, script writing, sales, marketing, and other entrepreneurial skills. All of which are skills that can be used in the business world, since many of these kids will not have the option of attending college.

What do At - Risk youth get out of the scholarship programs?

I wanted to e-mail you and tell you thanks again for everything that you have done for me. Last night was the greatest thing I have experienced thus far in wrestling and I owe it all to you. Without you I wouldn't have had the chance to even wrestle in the first place but you took me in under the Usos foundation and I can't explain how eternally grateful I am and forever will be. I look at this as a great experience for myself and will continue to work hard and try to get bigger as far as physically is concerned. I just started a new workout plan for myself so I hope to gain some weight this year. I will continue to perform to the best of my ability every time I'm out there for you, and represent WXW the way I always have and the way I feel it should be represented. I was very proud to be able to tell people that I'm from the Wild Samoan Training Center, Pops' school. And I thank you once again from the bottom of my heart. Pops once again I cant tell you how much I appreciate you and everything you have done for me and my family as a whole and I truly thank you and your family from the bottom of my heart. I won't let you down. I'll continue to work hard in order to succeed in this business. I love you very much and I thank you again.
