MLSE Launchpad

By 2017, MLSE Foundation will transform 261 Jarvis St. into a 42,000 sq ft youth focused Sport For Development facility.

With the support of professional sports teams, this collaborative space will leverage sport, education and research to promote social change. MLSE LaunchPad will improve the lives of at-risk youth by instilling life skills to succeed wherever their journey takes them.

Opening in 2017, MLSE LaunchPad will include a multipurpose gymnasium, classrooms and a teaching kitchen. It will feature programming seven days a week that will focus on four pillars with sport at the core: healthy body; healthy mind; ready for school; ready for work.

Measuring and evaluating youth outcomes in partnership with Academic Institutions will be a primary facility objective. Onsite researchers will develop unprecedented Sport For Development outcome metrics. By sharing authentic impact stories and best practices, we aim to create social capital that moves the needle on social issues beyond our facility.

In order to ensure this facility is built to create these positive outcomes for underserviced youth in Toronto, $6 million in capital funding must be raised before MLSE LaunchPad opens in 2017. An additional $2.5 million is also required annually to conduct innovative programming.
