Empowering the Voiceless, Igniting Change

In a world where connection is often just a click away, it's heartbreaking to acknowledge that many of our youth are struggling with profound loneliness.

What We're Up Against

This isolation can feel like an insurmountable barrier, keeping vulnerable youth from realizing their potential, connecting with their peers, and contributing to their communities - they are oftentimes overlooked by society.

What We Do About It

Vulnerable youth are often the recipients of service, rather than the creators of service and this is where ProAct steps in. Our youth experiences empower all youth to feel seen and valued by providing a supportive community of peers and caring adults in which they can thrive.
ProAct has given me a new perspective of not only my issues but the issues of others, how little acts of kindness can positively affect people's lives in the end.

I struggled with poverty myself and joining ProAct gave me the opportunity to give back to other people and really show compassion to people who experience what I experienced.

We believe in a different story. 

Stand in the gap with us to help shape the futures of our youth.

We believe in a story where every young person, no matter their circumstances, has the power to rise above, to find their voice, and to use it for good.

 Benefits  of our Youth Service-Learning Experiences

  Small Group of Youth Serve and Learn Together

We encourage School Champions to recruit a diverse group of 12-15 students per cohort so that our groups consist of students with few barriers and many barriers who serve and learn together throughout the year.


  Youth Participants Gain Valuable 21st-Century Skills

ProAct develops these skills through weekly social equity workshops and monthly service projects that the youth participate in throughout the Indianapolis community. The four 21st Century Skills (NEA) are communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity. The fifth “C” that ProAct develops is confidence


  Shawnna's Rule: Youth Can Count on Caring Adults to Always Be There

We strive to never cancel a program experience for 30-36 weeks during any given school year. We call this our ‘No-Cancellation Policy’ or “Shawnna’s Rule.” No matter the time, reason, or place, we show up for our kids. Just by being there, you never know whose life you may be saving because you are consistent. #standinthegap
