THE MENFORMATION PROJECT, INC. is a community-based nonprofit organization providing high-quality group mentoring for boys of color (ages 8 to 17 years old).

Our mission is to help our boys stay in school & stay out of jail !!!  Our mentor team leaders are certified trauma-informed-care facilitators & trainers. We inspire boys to live guided by the 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 plus goal setting tools to encourage and cultivate positive growth in character, enhance financial literacy, adjust attitudes, and improve educational aptitudes.

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 when boys have a caring mentor,
98% stay in school; do not become teen parents;
don’t use drugs and avoid gang participation.

Unfortunately, boys of color are less likely to have a mentor !!!

MENFORMATION positively impacts the lives of boys of color, many are in father-absent households and desperately need positive male role models and friends.

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