Our Approach

Located in Toronto’s urban centre of Moss Park, MLSE LaunchPad serves as an ambitious ‘living lab’ to explore and measure how sport can help improve the lives of youth. Our 42,000sq ft space is an incubator for collaboration. In addition to sport programs developed by our team of coaches, we host expert partners who deliver best-in-class programming that support our 4 Pillars: Health Body, Healthy Mind, Ready For School and Ready For Work.
 
MLSE LaunchPad is a place where youth use sport to recognize and reach their potential. Our focus is on achieving sustainable, wide-ranging social outcomes for youth facing barriers through a Sport For Development approach. Sport For Development is a specific 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.
