[dropcap]U[/dropcap]WANTGAME aims to help high school student-athletes reach their potential in academics, athletics, and personal growth by fostering connections between them and successful former collegiate student-athletes. To facilitate this mission we have established three comprehensive programs that target various parts of the country: Mentoring, GameBreakers, and the LA Speaker Series.
The UWG Mentoring Program provides a comprehensive three-year enrichment program (typically 10th–12th grade) to youth who really want to advance to the next level. We follow the IMG Performance Institute’s model for developing well-rounded athletes with a heavy concentration on Character Development and Career Development. Learn more
GameBreakers is a movement to transform the impact of youth sport. It kicks off with a student-athlete success summit coinciding with the 2012 NCAA Men’s Basketball Final Four Championship in New Orleans, La. During this groundbreaking event, legendary coaches, professional athletes, and college athletes will gather to share their wisdom and experiences with black male high school student-athletes and high school coaches.

The program’s mission is to inspire and encourage high school student-athletes and develop them into thriving individuals and lifelong learners by establishing connections to a diverse group of successful former collegiate student-athletes.
