Youth Scholarship Program

A core role of the Foundation is to provide scholarships to local youth so they may participate in the many recreation programs offered by the Park District.  The District provides fifteen different youth programs such as Summer Day Camps, Kid’s Hangout After School Program and athletic programs such as volleyball, basketball and flag football.  On an average day, 397 youth participate in the many programs provided by the Park District.  The total number youth that participated in the District’s programs is listed below.

The total amount of youth attendance in classes, programs, and sports in 2017 was 112,754.
· Youth Development Programs = 91,233
· Youth Sports  = 17,802
· Youth Classes = 3,719

Each participant is charged a fee for the programs which is intended to cover the costs of the supplies and staff who serve in each program area.  Some Carmichael families, however, are unable to cover the costs and the scholarships provide 50% of the program fees with the family covering the balance.  If the family has more than one child participating, the scholarships can cover up to 75% of the fees.

The Foundation Board of Directors is excited that during the three years of scholarship support, scholarship participation has increased dramatically and in 2017 scholarship numbers quadrupled due to the Foundations efforts.  A major goal of the Foundation is to ensure No Child Is Turned Away due to the lack of funds.  Thanks to the great support for the Foundations efforts from throughout our community, no child was turned away in 2017.
