ManUpPHL serves young men of color between 18 and 35 who are statistically most likely to be impacted by gun violence. Our main initiative, Listening to the Streets, is an eight-session series that explores the causes and solutions for gun violence. Each participant receives:

  • A $240 stipend and a daily complimentary meal.

  • Mentoring sessions on life skills, financial literacy, and job readiness.

  • A group session with a licensed therapist.

  • A mentor to provide ongoing guidance.

  • The opportunity to provide real-life solutions to gun violence.

  • A job opportunity with one of our program partners, so long as the participant is qualified and available for work.
