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.
Our local partners work directly with youth to build brighter futures through the power of sport. We help ensure that these nonprofit organizations have all the tools, resources, and networks they need in order to grow and deepen their positive community impact.
We are conduct and commission research that proves sport is a viable tool for social change. We value academic research and program evaluation in order to drive innovation and to improve the quality of all Sport for Good programs.
