We are a preventative mental health and emotional intelligence charity that empowers boys to become great men.

We exist because suicide is the leading cause of death for men aged 15-44. It’s not car crashes, drug overdoses or coward punches. The biggest killer of young men is themselves. Not only that, more than 1 woman dies every week at the hands of a man, and most of the time this is a man they’re close with, someone they trust.

After working with over 30,000 boys across the country, we fundamentally believe that these statistics are preventable through early intervention programs that focus on boys strengths, rather than their deficits.

Using evidence-based workshops and expert facilitation, our programs provide boys with the critical emotional and social skills they need to lead flourishing lives for themselves, their relationships and their communities.

Our vision is to create a world in which every young man has healthy relationships, reaches his full potential and contributes to his community.



We do this through the following projects:

The Man Cave is a place to discuss the unique challenges and opportunities of masculinity, and we welcome young people of all gender identities and sexual orientations.

We are committed to inclusion and acknowledge that we too are on a journey of continuing to understand how to navigate and empower men and young people to healthily express their identity.
