As a member of the North Minneapolis community I have a strong passion not only for this community but for the organizations that are doing real work making a difference in the lives of our youth. I am making a personal commitment to raise funds to help this organization not only continue to run but also to find its own brick and mortar location. I am asking that you all will prayerfully consider giving and investing in our young men. In today's world can we afford not to give?
Thanks in advance for your contribution!
Our goal is to raise $100,000 to launch a Man Up drop-in Club House in North Minneapolis.
The Man Up drop-in center will provide one- on- one mentoring to 50 African American males between the age of 13 -20 years old per week.
Each day of the week will have a 10 person cohort of young men working together with mentors to receive hands-on leadership training helping them to help to develop and build their social skills, life skills, academic discipline, and civic responsibility.
Young men who become man up members will also be fed a daily meal and engage in constructive extra circular activities. All donations and contributions are tax-deductible.
