Supporting: Become a Man Up Partner for The Man Up Club

My Team: Tianna McKinney's Team



The Man Up Club is a Non-Profit Organization that Mentors Young Black Males Ages 12-24. I personally love the mission of this organization because there aren't enough resources today for young African American boys, that assists them in their development. Often there are plenty of opportunities of our boys to be developed on the basketball court, on a football field or in music - but they aren't as encouraged in areas of financial development and careers,  they aren't mentored in spiritual development or encouraged to develop as a good humanitarian. The Man Up Club addresses this need, and not only mentors them in every aspect of their life, but the focus is on assisting and developing young boys into men of holistic character. Working for this organization I've got to see first hand the brotherhood that these boys create, and I've seen how having positive role models and leading Black Males has changed the direction of their life for the better.

Now you can support too by helping me raise $2500 for the New Youth Center called 'The Man Up Clubhouse' that will be located in Downtown Saint Paul in The Treasure Island Center. 

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.
