    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.

    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.
