After selling Golden Foods/Golden Brands in 2011 at the age of 51, Jan Helson committed her Second-Act to using her business skills and resources to create Global Game Changers Children’s Student Empowerment Program, a nonprofit organization that she co-founded with her daughter Rachel Annette. Global Game Changers, modeled after their children’s book Global Game Changers is dedicated to teaching elementary school age youth that no matter how young they are and no matter where they come from they can make a difference in the world. Their in-school and after-school service-learning and leadership programs empower kids to discover their inner superpower to IGNITE GOOD!® through a simple equation, MY TALENT + MY HEART = MY SUPERPOWER™. She believes that learning to give back at a young age shapes a child’s life, builds character, leadership and social-emotional strength, and encourages personal responsibility that will help make them more successful and productive citizens.
