BRINGING BROTHERS TOGETHER TO FIGHT GUN VIOLENCE. ONE LIFE AT A TIME.
WHO WE ARE
ManUpPHL's mission is to step into the lives of the men who are statistically most likely to be victims or perpetrators of gun violence in our city, and to provide them with the mentoring, accountability, resources and consistency they require to change their lives and make our communities better.
We provide support in 5 areas: Employment, Criminal Justice, Education, Family & Fatherhood, Financial Literacy.
If you're a man 18-35 in need of support, we want to help you.
WHAT WE DO
We connect mentees to job opportunities and other resources while also providing help with criminal justice issues if necessary. We can provide transportation assistance and make referrals to assist with food, housing, and other needs.
12 Week Curriculum
Our 12 week curriculum is designed to provide a roadmap for men who are seeking ways to turn their lives around and meet their full potential. We bring in experts and others whose lived experience makes them credible messengers who can provide instruction in a language our mentees understand.
Connecting Mentees to Resources
Our social work team maintains a database of resources to assist mentees in our five focus areas:
Fatherhood & Family
