About The ManKind Project

The ManKind Project (MKP) is a global brotherhood of nonprofit charitable organizations [501 (c)(3) in the USA] that conducts challenging and highly rewarding programs for men at every stage of life. The ManKind Project currently has 9 regions: Australia, Canada, French Speaking Europe, German Speaking Europe, New Zealand, South Africa, Switzerland, the United Kingdom & Ireland, and the United States. There are also 4 developing regions: Costa Rica, Mexico, the Netherlands, and Scandinavia (Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Finland). Overall, the ManKind Project has a presence in more than 21 nations.

The ManKind Project supports a global network of over 1,000 peer-facilitated men's groups serving close to 10,000 men each week. In an MKP men's group, men mentor men through the passages of their lives. The ManKind Project empowers men to missions of service, supporting men to make a difference in the lives of others - men, women, and children around the world. We help men through any transition, men at all levels of success, men facing almost any challenge. Our flagship training, described by many as the most powerful men's training available, is the New Warrior Training Adventure. The ManKind Project (MKP) is not affiliated with any religious practice or political party. We strive to be increasingly inclusive and affirming of cultural differences, especially with respect to color, class, sexual orientation, faith, age, ability, ethnicity, and nationality.

The easiest way to find out more is to talk to men and women whose lives have been affected by MKP. If you would like to connect to people in your local area, please see our Communities Page

Our vision is a safe world where all men are brothers, in relationship with one another …

a world where conflicts are resolved peacefully; where torture, genocide, domestic violence and senseless war are only entries in the history books …

where men are fully accountable and take responsibility for their decisions …

where men stand tall and proud to be men, secure in their role and deeply committed to nurturing one another, their families, their communities and their planet.
