Sport for Good Chicago

Launched in June 2018, Sport for Good Chicago is a collective that has grown to include representation from more than 80 organizations that use 24 different sports to collectively serve more than 75,000 youth. Sport for Good Chicago, provides a platform for collaboration and advocates for sport as a vehicle for social change in our community. Together, we imagine a Chicago where child has the opportunity to be part of a team, every coach is trained in life-skill development and sport-skill development, every park is a safe haven, and every program receives the support it needs to thrive.

Sport for Good Chicago is Laureus USA’s fourth Sport for Good City, built on learnings and experience from our efforts in Atlanta, New Orleans, and New York City.
