Organized by: Kirsty Fontaine

THE STORY:

Game Changers is a public health intervention that aims to curb generational poverty and violence that stems from unstable gender biased relationships. It engages male adult coaches and black female student athletes ages 11 to 14 in their middle school teams in Washington, DC in a retreat and refresher session to identify and maintain clear non-romantic roles, expectations, and boundaries for mutually beneficial relationships. The 2016-2017 coach and student athlete program spans one academic school year where the teams commit to building positive values, attitudes and behaviors in their relationships.

Why is this important? Middle schools girls are in their formative years: they are developing their views on what healthy and appropriate relationships look like. These views will be used to judge their relationships with others moving forward. By establishing the baseline and boundaries for appropriate, platonic relationships with the opposite gender, we are setting our young girls up with the tools and discernment necessary to manage relationships with the opposite gender.
