Darius Baxter

After graduating from Georgetown University in 2016, Darius Baxter was voted by his two best friends Danny and Troye to serve as the Executive Director of their newly formed social impact organization – GOOD. Shortly after, they rebranded his position to Chief Engagement Officer of GOOD, understanding the real relationships that would need to be created with communities to one day crack the code of how to end childhood poverty in America.

He would go on to work with his co-founders to lead GOOD from an idea on a white board in their dorm room to an organization backed by the Ford Foundation that develops the skills, hires, and invests in young people in communities like the one he came up in.
