Our Story

Made@Dent is a social enterprise, co-owned and co-run by Baltimore youth and non-profit Dent Education, that builds to better lives.

We are young entrepreneurs channeling our creativity into designing and manufacturing products that meet our community’s ever-changing needs. Along the way, we are developing design thinking and business skills as we build a real venture.


We are not only a business, but a family that provides a brave community space for other youth. Although we aren’t (all!) related, we always support and look out for one another. Made@Dent is a platform for Denters to build their talents and sell their own products and services on our website. Our Youth Co-Owners set an example for all youth to know that you can accomplish a great deal at an early age. There’s no need to wait, let’s make a dent!


Thank you for visiting, shopping, and supporting us!
