Universal access to public parks and recreation is our department's goal. Every day we are working hard to ensure that all members of our community have access to the resources and programming we offer.
Youth Scholarship Program
The City of Cupertino has a partnership with West Valley Community Services (WVCS) to administer the Scholarship Program for youth recreation programs/activities offered in the quarterly Recreation Schedule. Contact the Parks & Recreation office for program/activity eligibility exceptions. It is available only to Cupertino Residents and Cupertino Unified School District youth on a first-come first-serve basis until annual funds are used. Those who are interested should contact WVCS to setup an appointment at 408.255.8033 or 10104 N. Vista Drive.
A filled out Parks and Recreation Activity Registration Form must be submitted to WVCS for review and approval. Once the applicant is approved by WVCS, customers need to bring the approved registration form to the Quinlan Community Center front office to process the registration. For further questions or clarifications please contact the City of Cupertino's Park & Recreation office Mon - Fri 8:00 am - 5:00 pm at 408.777.3120.
Stay Active Fund Program
The Stay Active Fund is about helping adults 50 plus to remain active, engages, and participating in the Cupertino Senior Center. This fund provides assistance to offset the cost for senior center membership and registration for classes and events. The Stay Active Fund is available each year from November 1 to June 30, or until the funds are spent.
The membership scholarship requires that the member pays $15, and then the scholarship fund will cover the additional fee based on the member's residency. To request participation in this program, please fill out the membership application, and then drop off the application and $15.00 payment at the Senior Center Front Desk for the Recreation Supervisor to process.
50 plus Class Registration Assistance
The class and event scholarship is where a member may request, once a year, for a scholarship and is required to pay 50% of the program fee for a class or event, not to exceed $20. The scholarship fund will pay the other 50% of the fee, not to exceed $20. To request participation in the Stay Active Fund, please contact the Senior Center at 408-777-3150.
