  • About Us

    The 'Multi Award Winning' Manhood Academy is a project under the mandate of the Lifehood Academy (registered with Companies House 10770040), a community based charitable organisation committed to offering young men between the age range of 8 - 12 years (pre-teens) & 13 – 19 years (teens) transformational workshops.


    Our company is 100% focused on helping our young people make the challenging transition from adolescence to adulthood.


    The Manhood Academy is a unique fusion of a ‘rites of passage’ initiation, mentoring and transformational coaching encompassing:

    • Various transformative workshops.

    • Mentoring which includes ensuring our young leaders receives intensive one-to-one life coaching and support from volunteers and coaches.

    • A life changing ‘Coming of Age’ rites of passage ceremony.


    Through our programme we want our boys to:

    • 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!


    Our Guiding Principles and Values


    The Manhood Academy's work embodies a set of core values. These values are important because they ensure that each member of our movement, from frontline staff to volunteers, Trustee members and even our young people are required to be examples of these fundamentals:

    • Compassion

    • Professional conduct

    • Empowerment

    • Responsibility

    • Authenticity

    • Bold leadership

    • Transformation

    Walk into anyone of The Manhood Academy's programmes and you will see these core values being demonstrated every day. Every aspect of The Manhood Academy's work, from the support we offer families, to the way we execute our vision is underpinned by these five guiding principles, which are fundamental pillars the Manhood is held up by:


    Our 5 Guiding Principles and Fundamental Pillars


    1) Synergy

    We are outstanding team players, committed to ‘One Vision’ that we are all responsible for


    2) Integrity (responsible for your word and truth)

    The process of being whole and complete in: principles actions, words, decisions, methods, outcomes and character. We bring the same us wherever we are, regardless of the circumstance we don’t leave parts of ourselves behind. We don’t have a ‘work us,’ a ‘family us,’ and a ‘social us.’ We are Us all the time.


    3) Transformation

    The origin of an original kingdom of possibilities hitherto experienced. Being present to a new nature, condition, function, disposition, heart, character, life etc


    4) Inspiration

    To move, touch and excite the mind, emotions or spirit to a high level of feeling conveyed through action. Move or stimulate the intellect or emotions to a degree that prompts action, invention and creation.


    5) Introspection

    The act of self-reflecting, by way of looking inward, to identify challenges and create solutions. An examination of one's own thoughts, emotions and feelings by observing one's own inner state is the principle we live by (Anything I see wrong with you, I will go fix it myself until the world becomes beautiful).

    These principles articulate the ‘The Manhood Academy and help define “who we are” as an organisation. Together, these values and principles underpin The Manhood Academy's culture.


    They are our belief system and define our ‘way of being


    Our Vision

    ‘Building Leaders of Tomorrow for the World of Today’


    Mission Statement
    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 ‘The Manhood Academy for Boys’.
