ManUP! uses critical mentoring theory to empower youths (14-24 y.o.), ManUp! employs the assistance of positive African-American and Latino role models to mentor youths, with the goal of reducing at-risk behaviors, to include but not limited to gun violence, substance abuse, gang engagement, teen pregnancy and fatherhood; teen dating and sexual violence, intimate partner violence (IPV); and bullying. The overall objective of all mentoring activities is to help build and strengthen the character of young at-risk boys, empowering them to become strong character-based men.


All mentors working with ManUp! are trained in the critical mentoring theory, which pairs positive adult males with youths, from similar backgrounds and experiences.
Mentors are asked to commit a minimum of one year, while engaging youths twice a week for at least 1 hour per session.
Mentoring is group-based and may be in-person or virtual.
