Milton Williams, Jr

Founder & CEO

 As a Mississippi officer of 12 years, I have seen firsthand the importance of creating opportunities for the young men in our community. Quitman County is a predominantly African American community with a median income of yearly income of $25,783 with nearly 30% of those families living in poverty with limited access to food and employment opportunities. What this looks like is a lack of opportunities and imagination about the possibility of a bright future. 

With the help of my Board and family, I started Men United, Inc in March of 2021 to help create opportunities for young men, and as we continue to grow, young women.  Men United comes from the core of my being because I recognize the pressing need within my community to guide, support, and empower young boys as they navigate the challenges of adolescence. Circumstances should not dictate a child's trajectory. At Mens United we see the potential in each and every young person and feel a burning desire to help them discover their own worth, strength, and purpose.

This program was born out of a genuine compassion, and a heartfelt understanding that these young minds are in need of positive role models, and mentors who inspire them to dream big, break barriers, and overcome the obstacles that life presents. At Men United, we understand that a guiding hand, a listening ear, and an empathetic heart could make an immeasurable difference in the lives of our young people.

Every Dollar Counts.

Help us sustain our impact. Our mentors are dedicated to our children. They often drive miles to support programming and pay for meals and materials out of their own pockets. Your donation allows us to create opportunities for young people and make it easier for caring adults to continue to support our young men.

Creating Opportunities 

College visits. Scholarships. Mentorship.

A key aspect of our youth programming is creating tangible opportunities for our young people to dream. We do this by taking them on college tours, providing them with scholarships, and mentoring them on their journey. 

Last year, we were able to take 50 young men on college trips and awarded 17 of those young people scholarships to begin their college education. Help us expand and deepen our impact. 

Deonta Boyd, Men United Mentee

"I just wanna say I wanna thank you and all of the men united staff for being apart of my life. Men united has helped me become a better man and taught me things that men should do in today's world ! It also helped me to be more humbled because at my age in today's life some young men don't get to make it.  Last but not least Men United welcomes any and everybody we don't pick who we want and I feel like that's very special  MU4L"

Leadership Training 

Preparing the next generation to lead.

With this initiative, our goal is to promote great opportunities for mentees and mentors. With access to the right resources, young men can become empowered by their own abilities and gain the confidence to fulfill their potential.
