About the MCCA Campaign for Change

 

When did MCCA begin serving youth through mentor clubs?

In 1996 the Minority Christian Coaches Association (MCCA) was founded with the help of Reggie White and other influential business men in Milwaukee, Wisconsin to help teen boys overcome gangs, drugs and poverty.  Mentor clubs where organized to give wayward teens a place to learn life skills, sports and the chance to experience life changing relationships with positive mentors.

 

The First Mentor Club

 

What are the core programs offered by MCCA?

Over the years these programs have developed into Work Ready Clubs, Sons of David Clubs and Team Fitness Clubs.  Each of our MCCA clubs are focused on offering inner-city teens opportunities to learn life skills, job readiness, organized sports, volunteerism and team building.

Why is MCCA successful at keeping inner-city teens off the streets?

Our mentors provide weekly and monthly conferences which take the place of gang activity, drugs and other destructive behavior. 

 

Leadership Conferences

Keeping Teens Out of Jail

 

Why do teens who participate in MCCA programs succeed?

When teens graduate from our mentor clubs they have successfully completed internships, community service learning projects and gained the necessary skills needed to avoid prison by becoming contributing members to society.

Opportunities to Enhance Market Value

 

Impact of Canvassing

 

Why do individual commitments make a difference?

In 2013 over 10,000 individuals committed to sponsor teen mentor clubs through our MCCA Campaign.  These commitments are made possible because each week club mentor teams canvass communities to gain new sponsors.

 

Your Support Makes a Difference

Provides Mission Opportunities

 

How are commitments made?

Every week thousands of caring residences learn about our work and make $10, $20 and even greater one- time pledges to youth in our clubs.  

 

Teaching Others to Give

 

Why is canvassing an effective way to solicit support for our MCCA mentor clubs? 

People make commitments to youth directly engaged in our clubs so they see first-hand how our mentors are changing lives. 

 

Helps Spread the Word

 

Where Does Your Money Go?

The cost of running our mentor clubs varies depending on the activities each mentor schedules for their team.  For the most part each club will host 2-3 weekend leadership conferences each month.

What does it cost for a team to attend a Leadership Conference?

For a team of ten (8 students & 2 mentors) it typically cost $1,500 per conference. 

 

What happens at a Leadership Conference?

At MCCA Leadership Conferences teens participate in Team Building Exercises, Canvassing Campaigns and Leadership Development Training through various workshops.

How many days do teens attend conferences?
