Local After School Programs

Having been involved in numerous youth programs including the Boys and Girls clubs, Chris recognized the benefit of after school programs in the lives of children, especially those who are from single parent households. He identified the problem of some Sandy schools that fell in the middle of the governmental funding pool because income in the area was just above qualifications for funds.

Chris was one the founding members of a program to put the pieces together with Sandy City, Salt Lake County, the Canyons School District and the State of Utah to create the funding of after-school programs in these areas. Chris considers this project to be one of his most rewarding and significant contributions to Sandy.
