"Listening to the Streets" is a program that will allow young men of color aged 18-to-35 the opportunity to have their voices heard.
Each month, five ManUpPHL mentees will join us in a series of listening sessions to explain street-level truth about gun violence—the causes, the effects, and the solutions. In eight sessions over a two-week period, we’ll ask the hard questions, get the real answers, and establish a street-level agenda for saving lives.
Along the way, we’ll provide them with the mentoring necessary to take the next step. Participating mentees will receive a $240 stipend and a daily complementary meal. If they attend all eight sessions, they are guaranteed a job offer from one of our partner organizations.
At the conclusion of the program, ManUpPHL and our media partners will elevate the best of our mentees’ strategies, and we will push for the necessary resources to make those strategies a reality.
Interested mentees should speak with their ManUpPHL mentor or Apply Below. We are specifically interested in men who have been impacted by the criminal justice system and we encourage you to apply for one of the first five slots.
