“And the Children Shall Lead......."

 

 

COVID19 did not stop a special group of 9 children seeking to become leaders, entrepreneurs, CEO's and nonprofit execs.  Game Changers Academy was created to provide a structured environment for young people seeking to change the world.  Each week, each child are learning to develop a business plan. They are responsible for oral presentations, conducting an economic analysis, research, scanning the competitive environment, justifying the sustainability of their model, marketing, social media, budgeting, and developing an executive summary. The ages range from 7 to 11. They are from the Northern Suburbs, Chicago and the East Coast.  Isn't that fantastic?   One of the kids is developing a nonprofit model because he has a heart to resource the homeless.  We have chefs, gamers, slime developers for therapeutic and sensory use. We have jewelry makers, school supplies created out of rubber bands. The list goes on and on.  

 

Please stay tune for their exhibition events. They are working hard to make their dreams come true.

 

Game Changers Academy Graduation - October 18, 2020 - 5:00 P.M.

Game Changers Academy Business Showcase - October 24, 2020 (Zoom/FaceBook Live)

Game Changers Academy 2nd Business Showcase - December 6, 2020 (Zoom/Facebook Live)

 

Please keep them in prayer as they continue to build their business and nonprofit models!

Our girls loved hosting the FIRST Ladies breakfast to inspire future female leaders, our pit crew enjoyed sharing their experience with the judges, and we loved being in the finals with our friends Turbo Charged and our new friends, Cog Champs. And, of course we love our sponsors for helping us win the Connect Award and sending us to Worlds for the first time!    Coach Melissa Ryan
