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 stay in school & stay out of jail !!!  Our mentors are trained trauma informed care facilitators inspiring boys to live their life guided by the 22 Principles of Manhood.

                                                 Call (310) 984-6931 

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. 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 with facility partner Boys & Girls Club of Metro Los Angeles @ Challengers Clubhouse. We recruit boys at schools and community churches in South Central Los Angeles, Inglewood, Compton, and Long Beach areas.

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.
