Giving Our Boys a Guide to Manhood

THE MENFORMATION PROJECT, INC. is a registered 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non profit community-based organization founded in 2008. We provide rites of passage and group mentoring for 8 -17 year old boys of color.

Our mission is to help our boys succeed in school & stay out of jail !!!  Our trained mentors inspire boys to live their life guided by 22 Principles of Manhood.

Our vision is to bring thousands of boys together with men from all walks of life, in a safe fun environment to share life skills & goal setting tools to encourage and cultivate positive growth in character, educational aptitudes, and financial literacy.

Our Saturday Group Mentoring relationship matches boys with a team of trained mentors in a 10-month commitment (Jan~Oct). Any boy can enroll free of cost. We maintain a 3:1 ratio of boys to mentors in teams.

California Mentor Foundation reports that when boys have a caring mentor… 98% stay in school; 98% do not become teen parents; 85% do not use drugs; and 98% avoid gang participation. Unfortunately, boys of color are less likely to have a mentor.

MENFORMATION works in partnership with Challengers Boys & Girls Club and charter schools in this low and moderate income areas of South Central Los Angeles, Compton, and Long Beach.

MENFORMATION impacts the lives of black boys. Most of our boys live in father-absent households and do not see positive male role models.

MENFORMATION delivers social services to disadvantaged boys that produces individual child development and improves community development.
