Presently MATES Organisation are aiming at Fifty Centres Nationally by the end of 2012...We are looking for Good Men who wish to become the best men they can be progressing through our Development / Training courses & give back to - Empower Community.
The Men we are looking for need to be open, honest and compassionate and are Leaders in the community that people respect and trust. MATES enables you as a Centre Leader to facilitate Men from a place of weakness to a place of strength where they too may empower the people around them and the community.
MATES saves lives not only by helping men from complacency to empowerment but literally...New Zealand as is the rest of the world are losing the opportunity to see great men share their gifts with us because in a time of crisis they take their own lives. MATES will continue to be there for these men and as a Centre Leader you to will one day help to save a man's life...is there anything more worthwhile in life?
JOIN US...this is the Adventure you have been dreaming of...join us in supporting others, empowering community, workshops, seminars get-togethers and out door adventures but most of all in Mateship.
“In the short time I have attended MATES I learnt about the mask we can all wear and it felt like mine was going to crack and upon leaving that meeting I also felt like I had a hole in my safety net…Gradually my life has started to change & every time, around & in that energy of MATES, I grow closer to that Authentic Life we long for & deserve to have and personally look forward to the time & challenges to come.” – Ricky
“There have been tears and laughs as we share together. Quite often I am surprised by what happens during our sharing together. I've found a healing takes place as we humble ourselves and share from our hearts. There is opportunity for the guys to really encourage those who are going through a rough patch in their lives. There is a great deal of wisdom that is shared and I have personally grown and learnt a lot through the times of encouragement…I have really enjoyed the challenging process that I have seen in my own Life and I hope that many other men will come on board so that MATES can make a difference in their Lives as well.” - Kevin
“This was a fairly dramatic and highly unpleasant time that left me highly stressed and in a lot of self-doubt…I have attended regular meetings since then and have found a huge level of comfort amongst members. It is a very non-judgmental environment where I feel accepted for all of who and what I am. I gain huge amounts of clarity and insight from all members and meetings.” – Lawrence
“This for me was the start of something awesome. Men here were interested in where I had been, but more so where I was going. This question was one I wanted answers for and they seem to give me a sense of hope which I hadn’t seen before. It was incredible the feelings I had from these meetings and I wanted more of it. I knew it was good for me…" - Peter
