THE MENFORMATION PROJECT, INC. is a registered 501(c)(3) community-based nonprofit organization providing high-quality group mentoring for boys of color (ages 8 to 17 years ).

Our mission is to help our boys stay in school & stay out of jail !!!  Our mentor team leaders are trained certified trauma-informed-care facilitators. We inspire boys to live their life 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 & goal setting tools to encourage and cultivate positive growth in character, educational attitudes & aptitudes, plus 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 in partnership with Boys & Girls Club of Metro LA 

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 individual child development and improves community development.
