Tomorrow
Is Built Today

Where youth use sport to recognize & reach their potential

our programs

Select from programs that encourage play, skill development, & increased physical activity

our approach

Incubator for Collaboration

We partner with expert organizations who have a longstanding history of delivering programming that support our 4 pillars: Healthy Body, Healthy Mind, Ready For School and Ready For Work.

Commitment to Measurement

We measure outcomes by investing in research and evaluation. Through a purpose-built technology platform, we will continually improve and share our learnings.

Sport for Development

We use a Sport For Development approach, a methodology supported by extensive research that suggests the intentional use of sport and physical activity can build healthy communities and help people reach their full potential.
Sport is a very powerful tool, and we believe by combining sport and youth development programming with a commitment to measurement and evaluation, anything is possible.

Our 4 Pillars

01

Healthy body

Get active, stay active, and make healthy choices.
02

Healthy mind

Build skills for life like grit, resilience, and self-esteem.
03

Ready for school

Engage academically, and learn how to collaborate and think critically.
04

Ready for work

Get work-ready and become a leader in your chosen field.

the space

Our 42,000sq ft space is an incubator for collaboration.

Coach Oweme

“I was taught a variety of skill sets based on MLSE LaunchPad's four pillars: healthy body, healthy mind, ready for school, and ready for work. I worked with 19 other youths in the program, and I learned how to develop my professionalism and expand my network.”

Since Day 1: Abel Berhane

“I know all these guys from other areas because of this space. We were all in different elementary schools and when we got to high school, we all knew each other because of MLSE LaunchPad...it's family here.”

Coach Dane

“Coach Dane is one of those guys. He’s a pillar in his community, especially in the west end.”

Amina Warsame: Behind the Lens

Listen, I’m a Black Muslim woman and growing up I didn’t see much representation in commercials, places, or people in high positions. I didn’t see myself. What made this campaign special is it gave a spotlight to youth we work with.
