Mission/Vision

The Athletic Club Licey, conscious of its social responsibility, develops during the entire year a series of activities within its Licey with the Community Program, which includes different projects benefitting Dominican youth, with the goal of marking the difference fro the other Dominican baseball teams, being considered for more than just baseball.

Primary Programs and Projects

• The Read and Learn Program: it consists in the visit of baseball players to libraries in the country, to read stories to the children with the goal of motivating them to develop their interest in reading and promote the daily use of libraries, in such a way that they acquire skills efficiently to manage in this environment, understand the importance of learning and value the importance of taking care of and preserving books.
• Tour of the LIttle Tiger. The mascot of the Tigres del Licey visits the playgrounds of different educational centers, providing fun, presents, candy and healthy entertainment for boys and girls, with the general goal of promoting the team’s mascot “El Tiguerito,” so that it becomes the favorite character for Dominican children. Similarly, the donation of workbooks with the cover of the main players of the team contributes to children of scarce resources.
• Studying Is First Program: it is the program through which the players develop different talks for grade schools and high schools in the country. Every year they receive dozens of requests from different educational centers that want a player from the franchise to orient the students. 2013 was the fifth consecutive year of the program.
• Sports Clinics: the players of the Tigres del Licey, upon returning from their international commitments, give different sports clinics in the neighborhoods of Santo Domingo and the provinces of the country. The goal is that the players share their knowledge for free with children and youth, so that they serve as role models and, most importantly, serve as a link between players and fans.
