Health & Wellness


What is MOCHA?
MOCHA stands for Men of Color Health Awareness. It was developed to improve the health and wellness of men of color. This collaborative effort enables men of color to engage in an educational and social experience with the support and motivation necessary to make lifestyle and community changes.

MOCHA Schedule
The MOCHA program includes a 12 week class focusing on key areas of men’s health in addition to weekly exercise classes. Each week includes discussion, education and peer support surrounding each topic. Each participant participates in pre and post wellness assessments.

  • Improve personal fitness in mind, body and spirit. 
  • Understand attitudes and behaviors that contribute to personal, family and community health.
  • Build health supporting relationships with other men of color.
  • Become a role model for healthy manhood and an advocate for MOCHA
