The Entrepreneurship Experience
While on a college mission trip to Botswana, Africa, Derrin experienced the power of giving back to others and wondered how his life would have been different had he been exposed to service at a younger age. This led to the founding of ProAct and what it is today – an organization that has become expert in critical service-learning. With a strong background in nonprofit management and research, Derrin acts as the conduit between the needs of the community, and the individuals, partners, sponsors, and students that engage with ProAct. Under his leadership, the organization has engaged over 6,000 boys and girls in community service, increased its budget ten-fold, and has established over 60 different corporate and community partners in just under five years.
