Sports continue to be one of the engagement strategies that help separate youth from negative influences and behaviors. At Mentoring Valuable Protégés, participants are able to nurture their desire to be an MVP at home, school, and in the community. Our program infrastructure includes four mainstream sports that penetrate all communities in disregard of age, race, ethnicity, and gender.
