Are you, or is someone you know, a young professional in the Baltimore area who’s doing great things inside and outside of the office? GameChangers are young professionals going above and beyond. They’re successful at work, committed to bettering their communities, and are leaders among their peers. Each fall, a committee reviews applications and nominations to select the most deserving young professionals and recognizes them for their efforts by declaring them GameChangers. GameChangers agree to support UCF’s mission by serving the young adult cancer community and raising funds ($3,000+) to support vital free programs for young adults, and their loved ones, impacted by cancer. The program begins in October of 2017 when the selected GameChangers begin a curriculum designed to serve the young adult cancer community while engaging in valuable personal and professional development. The curriculum includes meaningful volunteer opportunities, education on the young adult cancer fight, and benefits related to professional growth, networking, and tickets to UCF events. The program culminates with the with formal recognition at UCF’s annual Blue Jeans {& Bowties} Ball in early February, 2018 where the GameChangers will be celebrated for their commitment and accomplishments. After completing the program, GameChangers are invited to join UCF’s Body of Young Adult Advisors (BOYAA) where they will receive a complimentary Ambassador membership for the 2017-2018 year. GameChangers are also encouraged to continue their engagement by nominating and reviewing applicants for the following year.
