GameChanger is a Student-Powered Substance Misuse Prevention Movement connecting West Virginia students and the educators who care about them with the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation to build school environments which prevent student opioid and other drug use before it starts.
GameChanger works directly with schools to implement, monitor and sustain the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation’s student peer leadership programs, found by research to help children make healthy choices about alcohol, opioids, and all other drugs. As a youth-led prevention, positive development and community enhancement initiative,
GameChanger programming is designed to educate, support and empower young West Virginians to live healthy, drug free lifestyles while preparing to be to be our leaders of tomorrow.
GameChanger was created in 2018 with a mission to prevent drug and alcohol abuse and misuse in the youth population. We connect students, educators, and communities across the nation with an aim toward providing the educational, training, coaching, and other consulting and support services necessary to prevent substance abuse.
GameChanger supports its important activities through its fundraising efforts. We welcome your contributions and are grateful to all those who have donated their time and money. Become a GameChanger today!
