Even the best of us need a little mentoring every now and then.

Our Mission:

Helping Young Boys Become Men

The ManCore Leadership Program, LLC mission is to share, teach and demonstrate the principles of manhood to young men, enabling them to achieve their dreams and become men who are strong, responsible and productive.

The community based mentoring approach give boys (ages 10-17) a variety of male role models who show up consistently to support, share and encourage each young man in his pursuit of manhood and excellence.

Being male does not guarantee a boy will grow up to be a gentleman and the current self-absorbed culture is not likely to model or promote the qualities of a gentleman. It is a process for a boy to become a man and develop into a gentleman. Parents invest a great deal of time and resources to develop their son’s academic, athletic, or artistic talent, with little or no thought as to what is required for him to mature into a gentleman.

A gentleman understands that his appearance, behavior, and way of communicating provide others with valuable insight into his character. He knows that he did not acquire his true strength at the gym. Rather, he demonstrates true strength through his strong character and integrity.


"Once you replace negative thoughts with positive ones, you'll start having positive results."


ManCore Spotlight


The Mancore Leadership Program was created out of love as much as it was created out of need. We fight to educate our young men about what it really means to be a man.
