So many diligent and hardworking AmeriCorps Members have passed through our doors and made a lasting impact on Global Game Changers. As much as we would love to keep these phenomenal team members for the long haul, their service term is unfortunately limited. To commemorate these Superhero workers, we plan to spotlight each of them as they depart from Global Game Changers.
Here’s to honoring a year filled with many corny jokes, caffeine-filled days, and consuming a copious amount of ice cream (thanks to Ehrler’s for being generous supporters and right next door!).

As Development VISTA, Jessica’s role evolved drastically during her time at GGC. She began by assisting with grant-writing, but her job quickly shifted to include all of GGC’s written material. Throughout her time at GGC, she also managed to become one of Ehrler’s top customers. They, and Global Game Changers, will miss her dedication.
