Youth and Sports Development


One Meralco Foundation believes in the capabilities of today’s youth as they take on the challenge of being future leaders of society. By enjoining the youth through programs rooted in academic excellence, sports engagement and values formation, the foundation hopes to make the youth self-sufficient as they reach their full potential as persons and be productive citizens of the country.

OMF’s Youth and Sports Advocacy programs include:

Meralco Basketboys – consists of a basketball clinic with values integration sessions which develop the basketball skills of disadvantaged youth and instill in them the values of leadership, teamwork, and a winning attitude. Since 2011, over 2,000 marginalized boys and girls have been trained under the program.

MVP Academic Achievement Awards (MVP AAA) – provision of financial aid to deserving sons and daughters of Meralco Group employees to support their education expenses for the current school year. Over 600 brilliant Meralco dependents have been recognized under this program.

Meralco Chess Campus Tour Workshop – includes lectures and simultaneous chess exhibitions that will help build strategizing and problem-solving skills of the youth. This program, made possible through a partnership with the employee-organized Meralco Chess Club, has trained more than 1,000 boys and girls in 2015 alone.

Support to Scholarship Programs – aims to provide quality education to bright Filipinos who lack the necessary resources to enter the top schools in the country. The program has supported the One La Salle Scholarship Program for public school students of the De La Salle University, and the Project Light-a-Dream for out-of-school-youth and underserved adults of the Miriam College Foundation.

Football for Peace – an advocacy in partnership with the Philippine Marine Corps (Philippine Marines) which aims to use the sport to promote peace especially in conflict areas in the ARMM. As partner, One Meralco Foundation sponsors a football clinic for the beneficiaries of the program which is facilitated by the players of the Loyola Meralco Sparks Football Club and the Meralco Football Club.
