The Man Up Club is a non-profit, mentor-leadership organization for African American males, aged 12-24

We mentor young men in 4 areas.

Academic Discipline

Social skills

Life Skills

Civic Responsibility 

We place a high value on peer to peer accountability through a personal development approach.

We have three main goals within the Man Up Club. 

1. To guide young men to graduate from high school

2. Stay out of the prison pipeline 

3. To go to college or get a trade after High School 

The Man Up Club empowers young men in the urban inner city to make positive life choices while offering these young men a safe place to build positive long lasting relationships with mentors.

The Man Up Club is fundraising for a community clubhouse youth center located in North Minneapolis and East St.Paul.  The clubhouse is operate as community drop in centers where our young men can be mentored,  received tutoring,  a nutritious meal, trauma healing counseling, recreation, and job and career training.  The Man Up is  a brotherhood of disadvantaged young men working through life challenges, family dynamics, social and educational barriers to become valued competing members of society. 

80% of the young men in the Man Up Club are fatherless. Since the murder of George Floyd our services have been illuminated as we are empowering young men and helping them navigate through their social and emotional health as well as the detrimental effects of COVID-19. 

Will you consider becoming a Man Up Club partner and Sponsor? Our goal is to raise $100,00 to provide year round programming.  Home schooling has added to the disproportionate  graduation gap. The Man Up Club is working diligently to provide online and in person mentorship support learning services.  

Thank you in advance for your continued support in helping us continue to be able to reach the disadvantage young men in our community!
