In 2012, Mentoring Valuable Protégés Inc. received its certification in Florida as a nonprofit corporation.

The brainchild and founding CEO is Jason Gilliam-Alexander. He saw a community asking for more positive chances for the future leaders and as a result, he conceptualized and designed a program structure that incorporates sports, education, health, entrepreneurship, and civic responsibility. This response was a true representation of his life as a civic and community administrator, his experiences as a gifted student athlete, and as a family man.

MVP is based in South Florida.

Why?

Based on recent data, Florida has had the eighth-worst high school graduation rate and 12th highest teen pregnancy rate in the nation. Additionally, unemployment in the state approached 10% in March of 2013, and one in four Florida teens is overweight or obese. The tri-county area of South Florida (including Broward, Miami-Dade, and Palm Beach) houses 30% of the entire state’s population and each county’s total number of residents under 18 average 20% of the state’s population. The high concentration of young residents gives way to a significant amount of socioeconomic challenges not existent in other counties.

Enter MVP.

Our evidence-based programs are run by individuals equipped with experiences, knowledge of the target communities, and understanding of the value of collaboration to operate a sustainable and impactful programming.

We have impacted the lives of thousands of teens in more than two dozen South Florida communities by introducing a program portfolio that offers hierarchical, engaging, and effective program activities.
