The Georgia Forward Young Gamechangers is a leadership action program that brings together 50 of Georgia’s brightest minds under the age of 40, to help solve persistent challenges of communities in Georgia. Each class works for six months to generate big ideas and recommendations for persistent challenges in a Georgia community which they present to the community at the conclusion of the program.
Beginning in August of 2017, Milledgeville had the privilege of hosting the Young Gamechangers in our own community on the initiative of the Milledgeville-Baldwin County Chamber of Commerce. We had some of the brightest and most creative minds tackling issues related to branding and signage, retirement, education and economic development.
After the presentation of their final recommendations in December of 2017, the Chamber created the MBC Young Gamechangers, a small group of community leaders committed to implementing the solutions proposed by the group.
