Mike Smith  

Co-Founder of Non-Profit, Rabble Mill

As the Co-Founder of non-profit, Rabble Mill, Mike is working to end generational poverty one young person at a time by empowering kids to discover their passions and build life and professional skills through skateboarding, music and art.

One of Rabble Mill's programs, The Bay, is one of the few non-profit skateparks in the country. Through The Bay, Mike works with young people from all walks of life, encouraging them to cultivate their passions and live out their dreams. Since its first inception in 2011, The Bay has grown into more than just a skatepark — it's a 30,000+ square-foot youth outreach center that focuses on skate, art, music, coffee, and community.

Another program under Rabble Mill is Skate for Change (SFC), a global youth movement that empowers skateboarders to give back to the homeless in their communities. SFC chapters have now spread to 80+ major cities worldwide.

Mike is also the Co-Founder of Find Your Grind (FYG), a career education platform for schools that connects students to the jobs and lifestyles of the 21st century. FYG's mission is simple: to expose, enlighten, and educate students and teachers to the possibilities of tomorrow.

Mike's reality-based video series, The Harbor by Jostens, brings relevant and engaging content to over 10 million students and educators across the globe every week of the school year.

Mike’s passion and momentum hasn’t gone unnoticed. He’s been featured by multinational companies and organizations like YPO, Special Olympics, Red Bull, State Farm, TD Ameritrade, and Jostens. He’s partnered up with brands that he believes in to catalyze change in schools and businesses across the country. Even professional skateboarder Ryan Sheckler has taken notice of Mike’s drive and shown his support both personally and philanthropically through his Sheckler Foundation.
