Our

Story

Laureus USA is a nonprofit organization using sport to improve the lives of disadvantaged youth in more than 100 cities nationwide. We believe in the power of sport to change the world, as proclaimed by our founding patron Nelson Mandela:

Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair.

We galvanize our diverse range of partners, including nonprofits, athletes, schools, and corporations, around a shared vision of sport as a force for positive change. By supporting programs on the ground and driving collaboration nationwide, we are able to achieve our mission of improving the lives of youth and uniting communities through the power of sport.​
