Core Member Feedback

  1. The Maniphesto 5 Step Process
  2. All of our work in Maniphesto is about taking men along a 5 step process. Our mission is to inspire men with our vision and then take them to a place of leadership. Here are the 5 steps:
    1. Awareness of the Maniphesto vision
    2. Engagement with the network
    3. Commitment to Fellowship
    4. Contribution by joining Crew
    5. Conciliarity through Leadership
