Youth participate in group bonding sessions and other fun activities/projects.

MENTORSHIP PROGRAM

Our comprehensive mentoring program ensures that youth are prepared to propel forward and reach their life goals. Using life and career coaching, youth are paired with young professionals who help them navigate to their career goals. To be a member of the Ma'ruf Center and enjoy all of its perks, youth must be enrolled in our required mentorship program.

Many/Mini Men Mondays: 

An interactive discussion-based program that intends to build communities of positive male role models who, through consistent group mentoring, encourage and empower teenage boys through the development of positive decision-making and coping skills as well as meaningful social/emotional connections. Many/Mini Men provide boys across Milwaukee, WI with an opportunity to address and rebuild their relationships so they can embark on the journey to manhood free of addiction and violence.

Winning Ladies Wednesdays:

A girls group that answers questions like Where do girls today get information about womanhood? Or straight answers about life and society? Usually, girls get their answers from friends, and more than likely- social media. These often unreliable sources can leave girls confused and worried about the world they live in and what the future holds.

offers female Club members ages 8 - 18 the opportunity to hang out weekly with girls of a similar age and have candid conversations with trained and caring Club staff. Topics include self-esteem, stressors, healthy relationships, body image, mental and physical health, and current events.

Daily Devotions: 

The purpose is to take a step away from the daily routine and focus on spiritual matters for a while. Whether you are going through a happy phase in life or you're really struggling with something at school or home, having a devotion will remind you that there is a bigger picture and a higher calling than what you see day to day. There is no set way to have a devotional, though. Some people prefer to do one early in the morning, while others will make time during the day. You may have a set reading plan for the session or take excerpts from a devotional book, or engage in a number of other things.
