For nearly four years, the Elite Game Changers Safe School has been a beacon of hope for students who faced expulsion, suspension, and academic challenges. It has successfully transformed the lives of these young individuals by not only addressing their behavioral issues but also helping them improve their academic performance.
“Game changers” are people who’ve spent time in prison and now use their experiences to give back to the community. They work and volunteer at the school to help sixth through eleventh graders find a more productive way to live.
Joseph Moore, a dedicated Elite “Game Changer,” emphasizes the intrinsic value of pursuing one’s passion. For Moore, his work isn’t merely a means to a paycheck; it’s a profound commitment to youth empowerment. He believes in giving back and nurturing the same passion in young people. Moore, who has personally experienced the struggles of youth, understands the importance of advocating for them and being a mentor who has walked in their shoes.
“When you see the light come on in a child who had a file that said they were the most likely to fail and you see the opposite of that, you don’t call it work, You call it a blessing.” Says Carl Cannon, C.O. and founder of Elite Community Outreach
Parents attest to the transformative impact of the Game Changers on their children’s lives. Witnessing the overall development of their children has been an immensely rewarding experience, underscoring the profound positive influence of the Elite Game Changers Safe School Program.
