A native of York ,PA, Da’Laine Simpson, son of the late Robyn L. Scott , has commited his life to being of service to those in need. He is a product of the Central Dauphin School District in Harrisburg ,PA and earned his certificate in Theology from Lancaster Bible College. Since graduating, he has been gainfully employed at the New Cumberland Army Depot and currently serves as Union Steward for The American Federation of Government Union. While working, he maintained his passion to be of service to God, committing his life to ministry at the tender age of 16. In the summer of 2012, was ordained and elevated to the office of Reverend.
Da’laine uses his optimistic messages of resilience in his speaking engagements around the U.S, traveling to various states including Texas , Florida , and Ohio serving as the keynote speaker for many youth conferences. His message of hope and perseverance encourages audience members otherwise ready to give up to keep on going. Making a difference and being the difference is truly what he lives by. From the Christian community to the secular community he continues to be a game changer in developing and encouraging the minds of those he speaks to daily. He believes his life’s mission is centered around stepping out on faith and changing somebody’s life and perspective of life.
Through his non-profit, Bro2GO, Inc. Da’laine has been able to reach more people to live out his life’s mission. Created in 2017, Bro2GO would clearly be one of Da’Laine’ s greatest creations. The sudden loss of his mother during Bro2GO’s development in 2017 created difficulty in navigating through his own life. As a newly formed parent to his youngest brother, his personal journey and the trials endured would serve as his mission’s primary focus. He became more determined to make a difference in the re-entry world and as well for at-risk youth communities. In his capacity as the Chief Executive Officer of Bro2Go he has been recognized for his leadership and impact by Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. receiving the “Society Impact Award” in 2018. By the organization’s 2 nd anniversary in 2019, Bro2GO was being recognized by Harrisburg City’s Mayor Eric Papenfuse, State Representative Patty Kim and Governor Tom Wolf for the great strides that Bro2Go has taken to make Dauphin County and the Commonwealth a better place to live.
Currently Da’laine serves on the York County Mentoring Coalition and the Capitol Region Ex- Offenders Support Coalition. Being of PURPOSE on PURPOSE defines the character of Da’Laine Simpson.
