Great things are never done by just one person.

Our Team

Use Your Platform for a Purpose

We started with a clear belief that being a good steward of your platform means actively seeking ways to serve the people in your community. This belief has grown into 14 years of making a difference in Central Ohio and surrounding cities. We are committed to serving and enhancing our community through family and youth  focused outreach events, programs, and services.

You build stronger communities when you realize how to use your platform to help others.

Since being founded in 2008 by NFL and Ohio State University football teammates Roy Hall and Antonio Smith, the Driven Foundation has provided over 1,200,000 pounds of free food to over 8,800 families, distributed 3,200 backpacks with school supplies to students in need, and leads 25 youth development and character building programs throughout Ohio. Additionally, our powerful speakers also travel around the country, helping audiences reach their goals and add value to their teams through our ELITE leadership and discipline strategies. Today, we partner with leaders and innovators in every industry, from Fortune 500 companies to youth groups to make a difference.


We can't accomplish all that we need to do without working together. In union there is strength.
