CUYS is proud to support Omri Gal, a Swarthmore College Lang Center Scholar and a CUYS Mentor, who created the Design FC Program in collaboration with Warren Crevalle of the Philadelphia Union.

Through the MLS Community MVP Program, each season, Major League Soccer and Wells Fargo recognize individuals who are using soccer to improve the lives of others. Do you know a leader making a difference in your community?

MLS fans can nominate themselves or an individual who sets an example as a leader in the community and uses soccer as a tool to help make a positive impact in one of the following areas:

  • Social issues focusing on inclusion, diversity and equality

  • Health issues affecting men, women or children

  • Community service for a local, national and/or international charity or community organization

  • Sustainability efforts to create a cleaner and healthier environment

One (1) Community MVP is selected to represent each of the 24 MLS clubs. Winners are recognized, both nationally and locally. All 24 finalists are invited to the 2019 MLS All-Star Game presented by Target in Orlando, Florida where the Grand Prize winner will be announced.
