Man 2 Man  It All Starts Here
Man 2 Man Urban Youth Advocate is a multifaceted
intervention, recovery, and educational support system
for youth and men of color.


We are a nonprofit deeply committed to breaking the cycle of Father Absence for our families of color in the SF Bay Area, by providing the culturally relevant knowledge, skills, resources, and support for young men and Fathers to thrive.

Informed and compelled by our lived experience, we harness decades of evidence based research to design and customize our Fatherhood, and Life Skills curriculum, to address the unique needs of low-income men and families of color.

Since 2016, M2M has provided comprehensive programs, and wraparound services via key partners, centered on healing, self-actualization, and creating a new foundation for lasting systems change. New positive belief systems, broad based life skills, Fatherhood education, mentorship, community, and job readiness and placement, are the core elements of our work.
