    The Mission

    Our Why

    The world is transforming at an alarming rate, sometimes it is impossible to keep it.


    According to the Office for National Statistics Men account for 8 out of 10 people cautioned by the police, and nearly 9 out of 10 people found guilty for indictable offences are men. Men are responsible for 97% of burglary and 92% of violence against the person.


    It is clear that we are living in a society where something awful is happening to men. There seems to be a gap between manhood and adolescence and our mission at Manhood Academy Global is to address that gap by helping our sons make that transition from childhood to manhood.


    "If you do not initiate the boy into the village he will burn it down just to feel the warmth" African saying


    Our Vision ‘Building Responsible Leaders of Tomorrow for the World of Today’


    Our Mission To nurture, through a ‘Rites of Passage program, The evolution of our ‘Boys to Men’ through social, emotional, economic and spiritual guidance, under the wings of M.A.G.

    The Parent (Carer) Advocacy and Empowerment 12 Week Project (Funded by Young Brent Foundation)

    Step into a transformative journey that goes beyond parenting programmess! Here, we recognise that, beyond survival, the fundamental human need is to forge deep and meaningful connections. At MAG, we firmly believe that fostering these connections is crucial for families navigating the complex challenges of raising young people—ranging from critical incidents to child criminal exploitation, child labor, and gang involvement.


    Acknowledging the immense pressures families face in nurturing the next generation, our programme is dedicated to arming them with the essential tools to tackle these challenges head-on. We're not just offering a programme; we're building a platform that empowers individuals facing similar struggles. Together, we'll create a supportive community where shared experiences become the foundation for collective strength and resilience. Join us on this empowering journey! #ParentAdvocacy #EmpowermentProject #BuildingConnections

    Boys to Men tells the story of 3 promising teens, striving to overcome the challenges and dangers in their environment. Reuben, Leon and Micah are members of Manhood Academy Global; a community based program that provides mentorship and empowers young men who lack positive male role models. In this film we follow their journey, both literally and metaphorically as they pack their bags and head out of London with other members of the group for a stay in a place way out of their comfort zone. For one week, they leave the familiarity of their postcodes and go back to basics during a stay in a cabin located deep inside the New Forest in Hampshire.


    Through the eyes of three young members and their peers, we experience this transformative experience first hand as we watch them confronting their fears and working together as a team to overcome hurdles. The tests on the journey are taken directly from Gambian ‘Rites of Passage’ teachings and adapted to the boy’s surroundings as they work towards their final test. By the end of the intense week, the boys will have gone to places and done things that they never imagined were possible. But as with their daily reality in London, they will be faced with disruptions and heart-breaking news from back home that puts the challenge to better themselves and escape the negative cycle into perspective.

    Senior Leadership Team

    Your Skills - Empathetic, understanding, Logical, Solution focus, Consistent and Grounded


    Why MAG
    I joined MAG to see if I could make a difference to a young person’s life. I didn’t quite know what to expect so I was anxious, especially as I have not done this type of work before. I have help raise 4 children of my own and without really noticing I have also help raise many children, such as my Nieces, Nephews, my friends children. It’s amazing what impact you can have on a young person just by being there for them, being honest and also consistent. Is not an easy task, but the rewards far outweigh the work.

    My role on MAG is a Coach or Facilitator, who assists with the running of the workshops and programmes. I also sit on the senior leadership team to help with the making of decisions for the organisation. I also help to oversee the Finance team. I have also plan some of the external activities for the Young Masters, such as Paint-balling, Roller skating and Boxing.
