The Legacy Project
We are on a mission! The Legacy Projects are programs designed to assist participating youth in pursuing long-term success while influencing those that will rise up and follow in their footsteps. It is part of our Leadership First initiative.
As defined in popular culture LEGACY means, "Leaving a memorable and lasting impression on those that will follow". We want youth in our community to leave a legacy of hope, inspiration, and perseverance.
Our slogan, LIVE, LOVE, LEAD Legacy is the understanding that who they are is how they will be remembered, every day they must live in the way they want to be remembered and finally, they must love who they are and what they stand for.
Our Home since 2014 has been the Lighthouse Fields located in North Philadelphia. The Lighthouse is 15 acres of green grass and ball fields. Its location is unique in that this high-end sports complex is centered in the middle of low-income, disadvantaged community. It is a private property managed by the Lighouse Inc. Board and CEO. Unfortunately, this means that it does not get support from Parks and Recreation and the City of Philadelphia. Most of the maintenance and upkeep is done by volunteers.
Since 2014, MVP360 has been running programs such as soccer, flag football, baseball and softball at the Lighthouse. The process hasn't been easy. The Lighthouse has suffered from a lack of attention and funding. It's been abused and vandalized and overall neglected. 2019 has been different! We are finally making progress. The field is managed and secured, we have great landscaping partners and we will soon be hosting USA Softball events!
