Mantalk, which takes place every 4th Monday is the breeding ground for courageous conversation. We are very strategic when it comes to the trust and emotional safety of every man. Therefore, We are intentional about providing a safe space that allows men of color the opportunity to be expressive, empowered, and educated by their peers.
27:17 is a MANUPSTL mentorship component. It’s name is directly inspired by Proverbs 27:17 “As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.” That’s exactly our mission. Connecting, and making every man matter. We strive to cultivate leaders, build personal relationships, and provide resources that help support and assist all men, all ages within brotherhood.
The 2nd reason we exist. Every month we host 1-3 community events geared towards youth and family. We understand that it takes a village to raise a child, and that our men simply can't do it alone. We are excited to provide family fun events and activities that bring the city together. We are stronger together!
