Sport For Good New Orleans

Launched in September 2014, New Orleans was Laureus’ first Sport for Good City. Since then, Sport for Good New Orleans has impacted the lives of more than 80,000 youth and built a cross-sector coalition of over 20 diverse partners dedicated to improving the community through the power of sport.

Alongside grants to local sports-based youth development organizations, Laureus USA provides training for coaches, networking for program staff, and monitoring and evaluation support to help expand each program’s impact while working collectively to achieve city-wide goals.
