Organization Information

Mission Statement

MUST is helping break the cycle of poverty by filling the void of positive male role models in the urban core. We hire promising young men and equip them to fulfill their own potential and give back to younger kids in the same community through mentorship.

MUST provides mentoring jobs to young men in their 20s who grew up in at-risk environments and who now want to attend college. MUST pairs the mentors with high school freshmen currently in at-risk environments. For four years relationships are built within a culture of education and hope. For four years the younger guys watch the older guys and begin to think, 'They come from the same place I do. If they can do it? so can I.'

Activities include weekly breakfasts, fun and new group experiences on weekends, job shadowing and tutoring. Mentors and youth are building relationships with peers headed in the same direction. We say, 'Show me your friends and I will show you your future.'

Description

Mentors (Coaches) are older successful men in the community who agree to meet weekly with our mentors to help them navigate college, be a great mentor and better man.
