Game changer mentorship
The Game Changer programme is a partnership between Sandals and Wades World Foundation aimed at providing underserved youth access to planned sports, recreation and healthy lifestyle. It has been proven that young people who engage in sports display an attitude of teamwork and character, which demonstrates discipline, leadership, respect and self- confidence.
Game Changer aims to build partnerships in local communities between youth groups, schools and NGOs.
Students across Turks & Caicos, along with their coaches, had the unique opportunity to hear from the NBA Champion Dwyane Wade basketball super-star and other members of the Wade’s World Foundation team. Wade took some time to share his inspirational story with young athletes through a mentorship session during the Wade World Submit held in the TCI.
The Sandals Foundation has also provided 300 pairs of basketball sneakers to government schools across the Turks & Caicos Islands as part of its on-going Game Changer efforts. Basketball players at high schools on South Caicos, Grand Turk, North Caicos and Providenciales received brand new pairs of the Miami Heat star’s signature brand “Way of Wade" basketball shoes which were donated by his shoe partner Li-Ning®.
