Project Manhood™ is a program to enable churches and nonprofit organizations and schools to reach and develop at-risk boys into responsible, educated, employed, and self-sufficient young men. We also empower men to become extraordinarily successful in life as they were created to be.
Project Manhood™ was conceived in 1989 by Sheldon D. Nix, Ph.D., M.S.W., now Executive Director of The Life Center (for more on Dr. Nix click here). The Project Manhood™ boys program assists churches to reach and develop at-risk boys into responsible, educated, employed, and self-sufficient young men. The program, when fully implemented, helps churches, schools and nonprofit programs be comprehensive and male-specific in their approach and it enables them to reach a generation of boys and their parents.
The program for men focuses on three core areas: identity and spiritual formation, career direction and success, and being a great father.
Together with our team, we offer you all the resources and training you need to start or build an effective program for boys and men!.
Begin a Program for Boys
Starting a ministry or program for boys? Here's how we can help:
Core Resources: To operate your Program for Boys, you will need our Core Resources. These are the foundational elements of your Project Manhood program.
Soft Skills Resources: After launching your program for boys, supplemental curricula will allow you to teach the boys critcial soft skills necessary for success in the 21st century workforce.
Training and Coaching: We don't leave you to figure it all out on your own. We offer initial training sessions and an 18-month coaching program that will have the men running your program knowing exactly what they are doing.
Begin a Program for Men
A comprehensive program for men should cover several key areas:
And Project Manhood has curricula, tools, and training for all three central areas. Becoming Effective Fathers & Mentors is the curriculum, based on the life of Moses, that gets men to open up about their real feelings and thoughts and helps them work on self-esteem, sense of purpose, and other key areas of manhood. A Father for Life teaches dads to be good fathers using six critical skills. Our S.H.A.P.E. class gives men a deep dive into their strengths, gifts, passions, and purpose...all of which point them to the careers that will best fit them.
