What is WHYY Game Changers?

Game Changers is a new initiative co-founded with Rodney and Erika McLeod and WHYY to inspire people to get in the game and make a difference. WHYY Game Changers are committed to building a brighter future and a better tomorrow by supporting the education, empowerment and development of today’s youth leaders. Our goal is to amplify voices of change and inspire game-changing thinking and action in our community.


Amplify Voices
Honor Perseverance
Celebrate Lifelong Learning
Foster Leadership

Game Changers are the problem solvers, the hand raisers.

The people who don’t wait for things to come to them.
They run out, shout out and make it all happen while
the world sleeps.

These people think differently, act differently.
They figure out how to change the course.
Simple, one-step-at-a-time attitudes. Can-do attitudes.

We look at their schools, their communities, their families and friends.
And then say to themselves,

“How can I help make a change for the greater good?”

Game Changers Ambassadors

We are enlisting local and regional athletes, coaches and influencers to support the growth and future impact of the Game Changers initiative.

Game Changers Initiatives

Together with the McLeods, WHYY will help raise the educational bar, focusing on: lifelong learning, leadership, amplifying voices, and perseverance.
