GAMECHANGER GRANT

2020

Each year, the ABL Game Changer Grant awards up to $10,000 to schools in need!! The Game Changer Grant was created in order for us to fulfill our mission of changing the future for all children, More specifically, we look to serve the 3L child. 

The Last child in line at recess

The child Lost in the school system

The child Least likely to succeed

Serve the Last, Least, Lost. Believe in the First, Foremost, Found.

These funds are a chance for educators to join our mission and reach the children who need us the most. Thanks to research, we have found a way to increase children’s health, wellness, and education... through movement! If you are a supporter of our mission, and are interested in implementing Action Based Learning, Kinesthetic Classrooms, or Teacher Training at your school,  this is the grant for you!
