Our goal is to create an impactful experience that will change the game for all involved. The Game Changer mission, through combined effort from students, adults and the community, is to enthusiastically and positively change the entire trajectory of overall performance by enhancing teamwork and creativity, while explicitly teaching leadership and enhancing sought after soft skills.

What is a Game Changer? We’ve all probably heard the term at one point or another, but what does it mean. Well, Random House Dictionary defines it this way: “a person or thing that dramatically changes the course, strategy, character, etc., of something.”
By that definition, former Razorback and Milwaukee Bucks star, Sidney Moncrief was most definitely a “game changer” throughout his basketball career.
But now Moncrief is more interested in being a different kind of Game Changer through the Moncrief Institute for College and Career Readiness.
Watch these college students interact and engage in Game Changer experiences!
