About Us

The Outlet (501c3 non-profit organization) is a young men’s mentoring program in central Illinois. We provide fatherless youth with mentoring and  a place to plug into something positive.  This mentoring program is designed to be:

  • A place for social interaction and recreation for young men
  • A place where young men can learn about faith in God
  • A place where young men can be “built up” as men of character
  • A place where young men can be mentored by men
  • A place where young men can develop positive life skills
  • A place where young men can learn cognitive skills

Our Purpose

“Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. To take up the cause of the FATHERLESS; pled the cause of the widow.

Isaiah 1:17

The Outlet is here to stand in the gap for the fatherless men of Central Illinois and surrounding communities. Young men need a safe haven where they interact with friends, enjoy recreation and be challenged to fulfill their God given potential as men of character and standard. But while there are many church ministries and community centers that focus on youth, very few focus on the distinct needs of fatherless boys and young men (ages 8-22) mixed with God’s word. All people are welcome to participate in The Outlet programs regardless of race, ability, religion, sex, national origin, or income.

Our Vision

We have a vision for thousands of kids to grow into Godly men, fathers, entrepreneurs, college graduates who will positively impact their communities for the better.
