The Man Box is a teaching metaphor about the way boys / men are socialized to view masculinity, women, and girls. Paul Kivel and the Oakland Men’s Project gave birth to the conceptual underpinning of the “Act Like A Man Box”, creating a central part of men’s work with boys and men. Tony Porter’s decades of work with men in his organization, A Call to Men, has furthered these ideas and made “The Man Box” – a globally recognized phrase and teaching tool. (See Tony Porter’s Man Box TedTalk).
Coach Pete’s MENtor program is founded on the principles he learned at the New York Model Batterer Program for Men (NYMBP.org), the Center for Safety and Change in Rockland County and “A Call To Men”.
