The ManKind Project recognizes men living missions of service. For the 16th year, the ManKind Project (MKP), an international federation of nonprofit training and support organizations for men, presented the Ron Hering Mission of Service Awards to men recognized by their communities and regions as living lives of extraordinary service to the world. The recorded compilation video from the two days of online Award presentations is below.
A primary outcome of the ManKind Project’s New Warrior Training Adventure is the creation of a personal mission statement. Program graduates, called New Warriors, create these statements as a reflection of their desire to impact positive change in the world using the unique gifts and tools they have developed over their lives. For many men, a sense of purpose becomes a powerful motivation for overcoming fears and becoming agents of change.
“This is one of the things that makes the ManKind Project a uniquely powerful organization,” says Boysen Hodgson, Communications Director for the USA Region, “Men have the opportunity to create a personal sense of purpose that will be life-long. They have the space to do the work of overcoming obstacles, and they have an incredible community of men to support and challenge them to live BIG!”
Ron Hering was one of the founders of the ManKind Project and a co-creator of the New Warrior Training Adventure. Each year elders in ManKind Project communities across the globe select men who are role models of purpose-driven lives, positively impacting others through their efforts – both personally and professionally.
Past Hering Award winners include numerous US Presidential Champion of Change Award Winners, globally recognized speakers, authors, and institution leaders, and founders of service organizations created to heal and promote healthy communities.
