Douglas Darby, the other Co-Founder of RISE TOGETHER, knows what it is like to go from nothing to something. Since he has been released from prison, Darby has been working day-in and day-out to pay back his community in a way that will make a positive change in those who need it most; our youth. Within the past year Darby has taking his speaking skills to the street where he advocates for change. He is a man of action. He stands up for what he believes in and makes a difference when most wouldn’t have the nerve to do so. As the Chief Development Officer at RISE TOGETHER, he oversees all creative development projects within his organization. He helped to start this organization to save just one life. Since September of 2013 he knows deep down that he has made in impact on thousands; and that he is more than grateful for.
