MenzFit is nationally creating a platform to combat some of the frustrations that are relevant today. With the resurgence of conversations being had across the country surrounding black males, we are taking this opportunity to present another option to the madness.
It is our strategic intent to be at the forefront of a movement to aid low-income men in fully realizing greater potential in order to exercise greater personal liberty.
Your Donations to our cause will enable us to fully support men and expand our services across the country!
MenzFit ensures long-term gainful employment and financial fitness to disadvantaged men. We do this through strategies designed to ease the transition from marginal employment and chronic unemployment to gainful employment by preparing clients for re-entry into the workforce through skills training, coaching, interview-appropriate clothing, ongoing career development support and financial literacy. For 15 years MenzFit has demonstrated great capacity and success, as we have been able to assist 6,100 men in Philadelphia and Washington, DC with their employment needs, of which 48% (2,928) remain employed. This success has contributed an estimated $52,317,504 in taxable income (based on an average salary of $17,868) to the local, state and federal tax base.
By broadening individual choice, the nation’s economic growth improves as well. The most basic capabilities for human development are to lead long and healthy lives, to be knowledgeable, to have access to the resources needed for a decent standard of living and to be able to participate in the life of their community. Without these, many choices are simply not available, and many opportunities in life remain inaccessible, which undermines one of the founding principles of this country – life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, as stated in the Declaration of Independence.
MenzFit changes lives, families and communities. Be a part of the ever changing man by joining the movement.
