ProAct has curated a robust curriculum to teach participants about the root causes of the social issues they will address through service. This curriculum informs our youth, corporate, and nonprofit programs covering a variety of social issues.
We have adapted our content for parents, educators, nonprofit and business leaders, and community members to learn from and use for their own knowledge, to teach others, or to adapt for their organizations.
This platform is accessible on any device.

Become a Training Partner!
We can’t do this work alone. If you are a training professional and you have content or training opportunities that focus on relationship building, diversity, equity & inclusion, and/or team building, we would love to talk to you!
You could have your own branded “classroom” within ProAct University to help us teach our community that service is about intentional relationships.
Experiences From Workshop Participants
Derrin’s presence: Commanding yet gentle. It makes me comfortably uncomfortable. Uses silence in the closing debrief. This program is rich in understanding the higher social equity issues and the importance of what they’re doing.
My son has matured in this program. Before [he] started in the program, he was shy and reserved but this program has brought out his confidence. He now walks with his head up, talks to everyone, and volunteers to help others whenever the opportunity arises. His involvement has increased his ability to complete his homework and work closely with teachers and peers so much so that his grades have improved since he first began this program.
It would be hard for a corporate partner to pull off a [community service] event like this on their own; ProAct adds value because they have the connections with schools and community leaders, and the trust from schools, youth and community leaders.
We are pleased to provide ProAct with opportunities for their students to engage with adult professionals who are leaders in the Indianapolis Community. We are also excited to work with the students on service learning opportunities to help ProAct and its well-trained, efficient team mentor and educate kids in its programs.
It’s great to be involved with actual people (not just beautification projects.) Interacting with people and students – Gets them connected with people they wouldn’t connect within their day to day jobs have been very meaningful, and for them to be involved also. People want the personal programs.
What I really appreciate about doing service shoulder to shoulder with young people with ProAct, it shows me that we have a lot to be hopeful for in the future.
We felt like we’d hired a full-time consultant to help us with this, so it made everything much easier on our HR Director. [ProAct] provided clear, detailed information to share with our people. Even the safety challenges were addressed.
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.
ProAct makes people feel like their impact lasts beyond the effort.
