Derrin SLack

Managing Partner

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 Indy in 2010. For the past decade, Derrin has proven to be a results-driven leader who takes a hands-on approach to any work in which he becomes involved. Derrin is an award-winning community leader with a strong background in nonprofit management and research, training, and leadership. He acts as the conduit between the needs of the community, and the individuals, partners, sponsors, and students who seek to better understand themselves and others. Through many training workshops and community projects, Derrin has led teams to engage over 25,000 boys and girls, community leaders, and business professionals to value intentional community engagement and appreciate diversity and equity as an integral part of their lives. He has trained all over Indianapolis and in such countries as Ireland, Ethiopia, Mali, Mexico, and the UK; and in many cities in the United States. He brings his eclectic and well-rounded experience to Know More LLC to impact diverse groups of people in more meaningful ways than before.
