Founded by former professional athlete Rennie Curran, Game Changers provides high school athletes insight from current and former professional and college athletes to provide guidance, leadership skills and development both on and off the field. This is accomplished through speaking engagements, one-on-one mentoring, leadership events and networking opportunities. In a Big Brother/Big Sister model, the Foundation provides an avenue to create support and guidance for student athletes to make a difference in their own lives and those of others.

Curran was a standout at the University of Georgia as an All-American linebacker before playing in the NFL. Throughout his football career, he depended heavily on his community for guidance both on the field and off the field. Because of his experience, Curran created Game Changers for current and former professional athletes to positively influence and impact their communities by preparing student athletes for their futures.
