About us
Founded in 2013, Global Game Changers Student Empowerment Program (GGC), a 501(c)(3), is an innovative evidence-based social emotional learning solution that uses service-learning as a vehicle to empower students to IGNITE GOOD!™ and give back using our equation: MY TALENT+MY HEART=MY SUPERPOWER™. Nurturing the whole child, students develop skills in leadership, empathy, and character that lead to successful and engaged citizens. Using engaging tools, our program incorporates The GLOBAL GAME CHANGERS, a team of fictional scrappy kid superheroes who empower real-life superheroes to discover their unique superpower to IGNITE GOOD!™ and battle their archnemesis, KRUMI, a dark cloud who spreads apathy throughout the world. This unique approach to social-emotional learning develops the whole child and empowers students to overcome apathy and feel empathy, developing a sustainable connection and continued engagement in service beyond the program.

Designed to align with both the needs of educators and the needs of the students, the curriculum is Common Core Standards-compliant, flexible, and differentiated by grade levels. GGC’s curriculum promotes deeper learning experiences for in-school and out-of-school applications and provides educators with access to evaluation, professional development, and robust classroom resource tools via its user-friendly online educator platform. Committed to equitable access for all, our curriculum is privately funded by the Lift a Life Novak Family Foundation and FREE to educators nationwide. We teach children, that no matter who they are, where they come from, or how old they are, they can make a difference in the world and empower them with the tools to do so!
