In honor of the inspiring life of Evan Michael Chambers and the L.O.V.E. principle (Lifting Oneself and Others Towards Victory and Excellence) that he lived by, our organization teaches skills and life lessons learned from the game of baseball. In addition, we offer a structured curriculum that instills the values of love, self-awareness, self-control, faith, family, and community.
Our goal is to help individuals recognize their ability to positively lift their lives and the lives of others through the daily practice of the L.O.V.E. principle.
(Lifting Oneself and others towards Victory and Excellence)
