Game Changers (ages 13-17)

The Peterson League’s “Game Changers” Youth Project Grants

Game Changers (ages 13-17)

Teens understand many of the nuances of life.
They are learning how things work and how things get accomplished.
Figuring out other people’s processes and coming up with their own.

During the teen years, one’s search for identity through self-discovery is at its peak, so this is a crucial time to support personal and social development, encouraging awareness in the realms of self-improvement, community betterment, and global interdependence.

The Peterson League helps teens make positive choices while solving both issues which are both personal those bigger than themselves.

Game Changers are eligible for a grant up to $1,000, empowering them with the necessary resources to take their project to the next level.

In order to encourage accountability, The Peterson League will check in with the participant at the midway point to provide one-on-one counseling.
