Seek A Mentor

It’s no secret that many male adolescents are not great with opening up to discuss their life issues.

Many of us experience tough times, some life challenges, low self-esteem, or generally are just looking for a bit of extra support and someone to chat to.

The Man Project's free one-to-one life mentoring program provides clear benefits for men and their partners, children, communities and workplaces.

Every man can benefit from having a life Mentor, a mentor who will be there to listen and support them in their life journey.

Our Mentees come from all walks of life; store men, managers, bankers, drivers, retirees, trades, students, between jobs – you name it. Being mentored has helped to turn lives around for the better.

Programs Boys to Men

Our program philosophy is simple: We are here to support the boys.

Our community-based mentoring model serves middle and high school boys ages 7-17.

Program elements include weekly in-school and open community meetings, 3 hour monthly mentoring training, and ongoing training and support for carefully selected and screened mentors.

Whether it be during the academic school year, summer break, in church or civic organizations in the community, The Man Project mentors show up to offer boys:

  • A community of mentors and role models who listen, encourage, and empower them.

  • A community of men who model integrity, accountability, compassion, and respect.

  • A community where boys are empowered to speak their truth and encouraged to take responsibility for their choices.

  • A community where boys feel supported, listened to, and valued.

  • A community where boys see their peers are facing similar challenges, and they are NOT ALONE in their struggles.

The monthly meetings combine leadership opportunities, peer mentoring, and self-esteem building exercises. All meetings are facilitated by one or more of The Man Project staff members and supported by volunteer mentors. The group meetings range in size from 12 to 40 boys with an average ratio of 7 boys to 1 mentor.
