Volo City organizes adults and kids league in seven cities including Baltimore, Denver, New York City, Charleston, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington, D.C., with more than 175,000 members nationwide. For every adult that plays, a kid plays for free through the Volo City Kids Foundation. The mission is to create opportunities for social interactions that strengthen communities and provide economic impact.
In 2015, Volo City launched the first Volo City Kids Foundation, a free athletics league for underprivileged youth, in Baltimore, and has since expanded the program to five cities across the U.S. In an effort to tie the cities together under one unified name, Baltimore Social rebranded in 2017 as Volo City and named Baltimore as its official headquarters.
Volo City was founded as Baltimore Social in 2010 by CEO Giovanni Marcantoni. Derived from the Italian word “to fly,” volo represents the organization’s mission to uplift communities, boost relationships and heighten the culture of our cities. With six full-time employees, two interns and 110 part-time league hosts, Volo City offers 330 leagues encompassing 12 sports.
