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?

My name is Kevin Robert Rojas. I am 23 years old and was born in Paterson, NJ. My parents are Betty and Juan. I moved to Kissimmee, FL at the age of 5 and this is w here I spent my whole childhood. I take pride in the person I have become and my strong Peruvian heritage. I enjoy playing basketball, playing video games, doing all kinds of physical activities, and spending time with my family.

Not many people know this, but I wasn’t supposed to survive when I was born, and to this day I have proved everyone wrong. Who says having this one bump in my head defines who I am, defines the person I am and who I will become? I thrive on the people that push me to be the best I can be, like my wife Julia, my family, and friends.

Since I was a boy, I have always had big dreams and my biggest dream was to become a wrestler. I was the kid that was always practicing any move I saw on television and being my own character for my “ring”. Now honestly I can say my childhood dream is coming true because I knew wrestling was always going to be a part of my life, I just didn’t know how exactly, and now I do. Words cannot describe how extremely grateful I am for this opportunity, and I will not let anyone down in this organization.
