The #areuin? card gives our region’s underserved youth access to athletic and other related programs without having to go through the arduous and sometimes uncomfortable process of having to ask and apply for financial aid each and every time they want to participate in an activity.
We are so fortunate to have the wonderful partner relationships that we do. Many of our partners offer full scholarships through the #areuin? card program. We know that our partners are confident in working with us because the #areuin? card program is comprised only of students that are part of the Free & Reduced Lunch program or students that have been vetted by school validators as being eligible for financial assistance. Through this program, these kids have an opportunity to sign up for programs without having to fill out financial aid forms and provide proof of financial eligibility.
A student’s #areuin? membership card is all our partner organizations need to know that he or she qualifies for financial assistance. It is an easy and simple process for the organization offering the programming, and it takes the stigma away from the student having to ask for financial assistance. It’s a win-win situation resulting in more participation in our region’s out-of-school activities & programs.
