The MANHOOD ACADEMY for boys is a community based company committed to offering young men between the ages of 8 – 12 years (pre-teens), 13 – 19 years (teens) and 19 – 25 years, life changing transformational workshops.

This programme is 100% focused on helping our young people (8-25 year olds) make the challenging transition from adolescence to adulthood.

Our unique ‘rites of passage’ programme is a fusion of mentoring and transformational coaching encompassing:

  • Transformative workshops.
  • Mentoring – which includes ensuring our young leaders receive intensive one-to-one life coaching and support from volunteers and coaches.
  • A life changing ‘Coming of Age’ rites of passage ceremony

Through our ‘rites of passage’ programme we:

  • Teach our boys about manhood
  • Expose our young leaders to images of positivity and responsibility.
  • Become more empathetic towards community issues, encouraging them to become active and responsible citizens.
  • Create tangible goals that are in direct relation to their value system, passions and expectations.
  • Understand their most powerful weapon is at their disposal; and having the ability to communicate effectively is the key to unlock that power
  • Better understand themselves and the world around them.
  • Respect and practice materialising their dreams, future and their potential.
  • Understand that with confidence and a powerful sense of self, they have won every battle, even before they have started. We want our young leaders to be balanced.
  • Have a vivid vision of what they want from life and the steps necessary to get there; we want our boys to become unstoppable, focused and iconic!
