About us

To call public attention to the problems, needs, and potential successes of at-risk youth. 


To move prevention and intervention programs into the public school system and within the Department of Juvenile Justice.


To shift public policies away from prison and jail construction toward prevention and early intervention for at-risk youth.

We plan to evolve, expand, and sustain impactful programming within the Tampa Bay area, as well as to become a leader in paving both a state-wide and a nation-wide initiative in the prevention of youth violence, drug abuse, crime, and delinquency.





Brakin Out is a 501(c)3 organization that was founded on January 3, 2014 by our President Tommy Carstarphen Jr. Tommy always had a desire to help transform others for the best. Since the founding date Tommy has taken the organization to new heights while touching many lives in the process.

Brakin Out has touched lives within the Department of Justice by offering their youth encouragement, a different look on life, and showing them that the life decisions they choose won't be their story no more.

We have provided the youth in the surrounding communities with backpacks, holiday giveaways, clothes, discounted tutoring, and plenty more.


We are not done yet. We still have a long road to go but we truly believe that if we can save one life; we can change the world.
