KEEPING SMILES IN THE HEART & MINDS
In 2016, 13-year-old Akayla Brown founded Dimplez 4 Dayz, a youth-led 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering the youth voice and reducing youth violence in Philadelphia by promoting the resources and programs that can enable young people to build confidence and fulfill their potential.
The meaning behind the name and our cause is to support and encourage individuals to smile behind adversity, turning dreams into reality. Under the exceptional leadership of Akayla, Dimplez 4 Dayz has grown into an impactful nonprofit organization, supporting over 10,000 families in Philadelphia through various community outreach programs and partnering with other organizations to build youth programs to facilitate positive change within their families and communities.
