The purpose of the ManKind Project is to create a safer world by growing “better” men. We do this by training men and supporting them in circles.

The ManKind Project USA Mission

MKP USA creates a world where men act on their individual and shared responsibility for the future of humanity by initiating and supporting men on a path of emotional maturity, spiritual awareness and deepening community.

What We Practice and Why

  • Emotional Authenticity – Because we believe in honesty and wholeness … we practice emotional intelligence and self-awareness.
  • Personal Responsibility – Because we value integrity and accountability … we take 100% responsibility for our feelings, and we own the impacts – both positive and negative – of our choices and actions.
  • Leadership Mastery – Because we believe that role models change lives … we practice highly principled personal, interpersonal, and group leadership.
  • Empowered Mission – Because we value generosity, service, and connection to spirit … we explore and live from our deepest purpose.
  • Supportive Community – Because we care for ourselves and the generations to come … we create a place for men from all walks of life to learn and teach in a safe, respectful, challenging, and inclusive peer-network.


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.
