Game Changers is a fun and motivational program designed to promote healthy youth behavior through basketball training and inter-active mentoring sessions that teach at-risk youth how to make better choices to build a productive future.
HOW CAN GAME CHANGERS MAKE A DIFFERENCE?
To ensure that all youth in Buffalo have access to opportunity through education, life skills and job training, Mayor Byron W. Brown brought together a number of community partners, including law enforcement, pastors and coaches in 2012, to implement the Game Changers program, modeled after the nationally recognized “Saturday Night Lights” in Manhattan, New York.
