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.


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.
