Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2009
This description of Dennis Karpes's work was prepared when Dennis Karpes was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2009.
Dennis Karpes has built one of the world’s most powerful global brands—Dance4Life is harnessing the energy and entrepreneurship of hundreds of thousands of young people around the world, inspiring them to take action in the fight against HIV/AIDS, and more broadly, for social change. This critical mass has already dramatically shifted the image and experience of youth in 20 countries and will, in the years to come, deeply redefine the youth years around the world.
