"It is easier to empower strong children; than to repair broken men,” Fredrick Douglass.
MAN UP n’ TEACH: According to Education Secretary Arne Duncan, black males represent a mere 2% of the K-12 teaching workforce. MAN UP n’ TEACH" is an awareness and recruitment campaign, seeking diverse, committed and qualified talent to foster innovative learning environments and intellectual development in urban education; utilizing the classroom as a platform to educate, mentor, empower and motivate our children to succeed. MAN UP n’ Cook: An annual Father’s Day Cook-off Celebration showcasing each man behind the food so that the food is the feature and the mentor and their mentees are the focus. Mentors and mentees will be integrated throughout the entire event as Cooks, Hosts, Pavilion reps, Emcees, Performers, etc. No Child should feel empty on Father’s Day. MAN UP n’ Empower: A recruitment campaign promoting mentoring initiatives through specific marketing strategies targeted toward recruiting and retaining Christian male mentors. MAN UP n’ Connect: A Fatherhood Initiative. According to Bishop Jakes, it's not a lack of love that stops an estranged father from reconnecting with his child -- it's often the fear of rejection. In order to reconnect, the father needs to "court" his child and discover their world. We will equip fathers, as well as, single mothers with the tools to effectively connect with their children. MAN UP Sundays (MUS): Young men bond and fellowship over a Sunday dinner once a month while watching sports and playing games with positive male figures in a family-oriented setting. Mentoring Workshops/Fieldtrips: Group mentoring has proven to be successful for MAN UP because there is safety, strength and synergy of resources in numbers. Tutoring: In an effort to improve academic success and post-secondary opportunities tutoring will be offered one-on-one and/or in group settings on a weekly basis. Mission Trips: An opportunity for the mentees to serve others, learn academically and grow personally in an environment far removed from their troubled neighborhoods. MAN UP Village: A long term goal is to develop Christian Group Homes for Boys ages eight to eighteen. A safe haven, where boys will be enveloped in love and develop into godly men. Realizing, it takes a village to raise a successful child.
