Our Work

Our mission is to improve the lives of youth and unite communities through the power of sport. We are committed to advancing the sector of organizations using sport for social change in the United States.

We know that sport programs can have a transformative impact on a young person’s life when they are designed to educate, and led by a trained coach. This is true for all sports, from cycling to rugby. That is why Laureus invests in youth sport programs nationwide, equipping them to measurably improve the health, education, employment and social cohesion of the youth they serve. We also play a convening role, bringing together organizations using sport as a force for good in order to learn from another, share resources and establish effective practices.

Sport For Good Cities

We propel social change city-wide by investing in programs, providing resources and facilitating collaboration at the local level.

Catalyst Grants

We support the growth of programs that work directly with youth, empowering them to build brighter futures through the power of sport. Since 2012, we’ve provided $17M in grants to programs using sport for social change. Alongside the funding, we provide professional development opportunities they need to deepen their impact.

Learning and Leading

We conduct and commission research that proves sport is a viable tool for social change. We value program evaluation in order to assess and improve the quality of all Sport for Good programs.
