Relationships and Responsibility
Canyon State involves the community to develop our student’s values of relationship building, community building and responsibility. Our programs seek to include the community and the family as much as possible so youth learn to form pro-social skills and develop the relationships they will need to succeed. We work to repair, rebuild and enhance the bonds and ties between youth, their family and the community.
Our community partners are invested in our mission and offer exciting, real-life opportunities for youth to learn new skills, gain valuable experience and discover the joy in “giving back” to others. Canyon State Academy strives to rebuild the relationships youth have with their community by connecting them to resources, and providing community service opportunities.
Canyon State has performed thousands of volunteer and community service hours to communities within Maricopa and Pinal Counties. Projects include conducting food drives, hosting Special Olympics and Relay for Life events as well as repainting graffiti.
Our community partners include Sun Valley Community Church, American Cancer Society Relay for Life, Our Lady of Guadalupe Food Pantry, Special Olympics of Arizona, Hoofbeats with Heart, Grand Canyon State Games, Boys and Girls Clubs, Boy Scouts of America, Passageway Scholarship Foundation, Town of Queen Creek, Greater Hands on Phoenix, Experience Matters Arizona and the Queen Creek Fire Department.
