  13. Fundamentals • In the Fall values will be introduced and reinforced by reading Jim Tressel’s, The Winner’s Manuel, focused on fundamentals for success. • Each chapter closes with a practical application section, where the students will be coached on how they can apply the lessons imparted throughout the book to their own lives, via the establishment of measurable goals. • The curriculum has been created as a hybrid. This will allow the students to be engaged both online as well as with face to face dialogue • Q&A segment by the H.S. athletes addressed to the Coach and or college athletes will round out the remainder of the session as some takeaways are given.- The information on this page is not to be duplicated or used without the expressed permission of Game Changers|Leadership and Peer Mentoring Initiative. admin@thegamejustchanged.com

  14. LEAAD (Leadership | Education | Attitude | Action | Determination) • We hate that the streets have just as much, if not more, options to offer to our young men as they seek out ways to identify with their manhood.

  16. National Breast Cancer Awareness Month I.e. In October, Game Changer's Team Office will focus on Breast Cancer. One option will be for the athletes to show their support by raising funds and wearing their jersey's in a walk within the community.  If a walk doesn't exist, Game Changers Team office will have the capability to design and attract support with local partners.   Funds raised may go to: American Cancer Society, Susan G. Komen foundation, or a local support i.e., Hope Center.   The information on this page is not to be duplicated or used without the expressed permission of Game Changers|Leadership and Peer Mentoring Initiative. admin@thegamejustchanged.com

  20. Scoreboard • We provide resources that are multi-dimensional in the development of the young men. The information on this page is not to be duplicated or used without the expressed permission of Game Changers|Leadership and Peer Mentoring Initiative. admin@thegamejustchanged.com

  21. Scoreboard • Program Goals: •Encourage athletes to get the highest GPA attainable •Introduce the value of an academic scholarships into their graduate portfolio •Engage the athletes to be more participatory in attaining higher results in the ACT/SAT •For some, create a new standard for academic acceptance >>> In many schools, there is an unrealistic perception that a student's 1.5 GPA is desired or acceptable when considering to apply to institutions that are nationally ranked in academics or sports.  And if our athletes use this "just get by" mindset as a barometer, they run the risk of carrying the same mediocre standards into making life decisions with their relationships, employment performance, etc. * As long as an athlete is permissible by the school to participate as an eligible player, Game Changers will allow for the student to be a part of the program.  However, to qualify for the Scoreboard segment; the following GPA must be attained.- The information on this page is not to be duplicated or used without the expressed permission of Game Changers|Leadership and Peer Mentoring Initiative. admin@thegamejustchanged.com

IncreaseFamilyInvolvementandConnections CRITICAL JUNCTURE Pg 48 Yet middle grades are also the time when fewer after-school opportunities are offered in many communities, and more students are home alone 2011 UNITED WAY EDUCATION 49after school. Educators call the hours between three and six in the afternoon the “danger zone” for young adolescents, because that’s when they can get into trouble—crime, teen pregnancy and substance abuse—without supervision or other healthy activities. It’s time for a brighter spotlight on the crucial middle years. It is essential that students have the necessary social and emotional supports, and access to rigorous and engaging academic work that promotes subject mastery while providing opportunities for exploration. Middle grade stu- dents need to see the connection between work and school, and need opportunities for engaging activities outside of school. Both inside the class- room and out, they need experiences to provide them the knowledge, skills and resources needed to succeed in high school, college, work and life. Master Presentation
