Our History

MENFORMATION started in 2008 as a ministry of New Dawn Christian Village ~ inspired by the late Pastor Frank Wilson.

In May 2010, THE MENFORMATION PROJECT, INC.  was incorporated as an independent non-profit organization recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt community based corporation.

MENFORMATION was awarded a technical assistance grant through the Community Prevention Initiative (administered by the California Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs) which provided comprehensive training to our organizing team in the best practices and policies for mentoring.

MENFORMATION works in partnership with CHALLENGERS BOYS & GIRLS CLUB to positively impact the lives for hundreds of boys of color. Nearly all our boys live in father-absent households and do not see positive male role models in this low and moderate income area of South Central Los Angeles.

Originally, our name was MANFORMATION.  However, in order to secure federal trademarks – in May 2014 we changed our name to MENFORMATION.
