I am a mentor leader at The Man Up Club. I have the pleasure of mentoring, coaching and empowering a multitude of African American disadvantage males age 13-24. This is an extraordinary work and a very worthy cause. I have seen these young men grow leaps and bounds through the Man Up principles, were we are pouring into them through life skills, social skills, academic discipline and civic responsibility. Unfortunately 80% of the young boys we serve are fatherless or do not have a positive male role model in their home. Please come along side of me with your donations, to help me empower them to graduate high school, keep them out of the prison pipeline and to attend college, or get a trade after high school. 

The Man Up Club empowers young black males to make positive life choices while preparing them for post-high school education via college or trade school. The Man Up Club offers these young men a safe place to build positive, long-lasting relationships with mentors, a brotherhood to be encouraged, as well as facilitated discussions about life challenges, family dynamics, spirituality, and dealing specifically with the issue of fatherlessness.


The goal of the Man Up Club is to equip these young boys and prepare them to become valued competing members of society. The Man Up Club is fundraising to launch a state-of-the-art clubhouse to continue to offer daily programming that consists of one on one and group mentoring, tutoring, trauma healing, youthbuild construction training, music recording and production studio, culinary arts program, gardening, field trips, recreation, etiquette and grooming.


We found the perfect location in the North Loop of Minneapolis. Our monthly operational expenses will average $5,000 per month. We have a 5 - year plan to directly impact our community and help fast track young men to a path of success. Our total budget is $300,000.


We moved into phase I of our new facility and began remodeling on Oct 12th.  Our Grand Opening was on Saturday, November 25th where we hosted supporters and young men applied to become new members!  I am honored to say our new location is: 1018 N. 5th St, Minneapolis, MN 55411.


The Man Up Club will have a significant impact on deterring and preventing youth violence in the Twin Cities and developing boys into young men of character. Partner with us today and be the change we want to see.
