Welcome to MVP360 Leadership Development Programs, Inc. is a 501c3 Non-Profit Organization. “MVP” stands for Motives, Values, and Personality. We believe in utilizing instructional and developmental sports as a way to create a path to success. Understanding Motives, values and Personality in life will increase the likelihood of maintaining focus through adversity. MISSION: Empowering youth to become leaders and productive members of society by providing equal opportunity for athletics and educational programs within the communities we serve.
The Leadership First Academy is a development program designed to educate youth about essential life skills necessary for continued success as a productive member of society.
Our goal is to contribute to the overall well-being of youth by providing access to services that promote healthy physical, social, educational, and emotional development. Our program is designed for all youth, particularly those who reside in low-income, underserved and disadvantaged communities.
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 Lighthouse 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!
