OUR MISSION

TO CREATE A SAFER WORLD BY GROWING BETTER MEN.

Our Trainings

The most positive life-changing weekend experience we know of, the New Warrior Training Adventure is our flagship program. After participation in the NWTA, you are invited to attend our other world-class leadership, eldering, mentoring, and multicultural trainings.

Our Men’s Groups

There are men’s groups meeting every night in over 150 communities around the world. You are invited to check us out and learn how ‘doing the work’ of sitting with men can profoundly impact how alive, successful, inspired, and grounded you can be. Email a local contact man to connect with a Men’s Group.

We are building and supporting the emotionally mature, accountable, and compassionate male role models that our communities so desperately need.
