What can you do to help the Volo City Kids Foundation? It’s as easy as 1,2,3…
WE PLAY SO KIDS CAN PLAY FOR FREE
What is the Volo City Kids Foundation?
The Volo City Kids Foundation began in the spring of 2015 as a passion project for Giovanni Marcantoni, CEO of Volo City. We remove the barriers to participation for those who need the opportunity the most. We provide free, organized play within the community. In addition to the weekly practice and game coaching, we provide postgame meals that give players and parents the opportunity to meet others within the community as well as connect with our volunteers. The best part? We make it easy to connect you to your community – as simple as Click. Play. Enjoy.
Volo City represents more than a game, we are a movement. We wish to connect more meaningfully with each other, and not through a screen. We are people looking for something deeper than a “like” or a swipe to the right. We are a grassroots uprising, helping people connect and share their experiences without a digital platform. While we’ve expanded into new cities (Denver, New York, San Francisco, Seattle, and NOW Washington D.C.), we couldn’t be more proud to call Baltimore home.
Volo City Kids we understand that no one knows a community better than the people who actually live there. We intentionally partner with organizations doing similar work and help them expand their reach to serve more kids and families. Within two years of us offering free quality kids leagues, we have had over 250 volunteers to coach and expanded from Baltimore into five other cities. Most importantly, we have changed the lives of over 3,500 kids all over the United States!
Not only do our volunteers get to play and teach kids a sport for an afternoon, but they also get to play in any Volo City league for free. Yes, you read that right- FREE leagues for volunteers! Can’t make it? There are SO many other ways to get involved! Everything from donating to participating in Kids Week events supports the Volo City Kids Foundation. For more information on what you can do, please see your league’s host, check out www.volocityfoundation.org, or email email@example.com

The Volo City Kids Foundation is our 501(c)3 non-profit organization, that provides sports leagues in each of our cities for kids ages 6-12 years of all genders, abilities, and backgrounds to play at zero cost to their families. Our mission is to create opportunities for social interactions that strengthen communities and provide economic impact.
