Arizona Coyotes Foundation Awards MVP Foundation $10,000 for Its Leadership Academy

The MVP Foundation is delighted to announce that the Arizona Coyotes Foundation has

awarded a $10,000 grant towards the MVP Leadership Academy.


The 3-day MVP Leadership Academy is held at Lost Canyon, in Williams, AZ. The

Academy teaches positive decision making and avoidance of at-risk behaviors to low-

income middle school boys.


Using various group activities including sports, group discussions, and leadership

speakers, the Academy encourages young men to achieve academic excellence and

develop positive life skills.


Following nominations by a teacher, counselor or coach, the students commit to

themselves, their teachers, parents, and peers that they will uphold a formal Code of

Conduct during the year. If the code is followed, then the students are invited to attend

the Leadership Academy at no cost.


The $10,000 grant from the Arizona Coyotes Foundation will allow us to fund the

academy for 33 middle school young men. This will cover the costs for transportation,

food, lodging and scheduled programming for the entire weekend. Executive Director,

Ronda Parker stated, “The request for assistance was specifically intended to enable

more boys to attend the program. We greatly appreciate the Arizona Coyotes for their

assistance in helping us make a difference in the lives of these youths.”
