Founder

Dr. Lars Rascoe III

He was born and raised in Indianapolis, IN and attended North Central High School. He attended Indiana State University where he earned his Bachelor of the Arts in Industrial Technology Education.

Shortly after returning to Indianapolis Dr. Rascoe began teaching and developing his passion for working with youth. Between Wayne Township, Washington Township, Pike Township, and Jewel Christian Academy he has over 25 years of teaching and administrative service.

Currently Dr. Rascoe divides his time between his philanthropic efforts with Boys II Men, serving on the Traders Point School Board, and mentoring youth throughout the city. He is a member of the eastern Star Church for 22 years.

 In 1995, during Dr. Rascoe's time at Metropolitan School District of Pike Township's Guion Creek Middle School, he searched for an opportunity to challenge boys to mature into young men who become prophet, provider, and protector of the next generation of youth.
