We live in a time of transformation and confusion. Many old patterns of social oppression have yielded to the urge for change. As individuals and members of groups we often find ourselves moving toward new identities and roles in the world. The Men’s Council seeks to be an inspiring presence where men can come to know themselves more fully and can feel safe enough to do the work that will move them forward in their lives.

The Mission

The Men’s Council is a nonprofit, focused on helping men grow, enrich, and improve their lives through support, fellowship, and community. The Men’s Council strengthens men in their roles of son, father, husband/partner, friend, and citizen.

The Vision

TMC provides the resources to men for their well-being by:

  • Promoting personal development and emotional growth
  • Providing opportunities for connection for meaningful relationships
  • Reaching out to other men
  • Creating and sponsoring events and programs
  • Organizing and referring to men’s support groups
  • Encouraging men’s creative voice and enhance self-discovery
  • Advocating for men in crisis

Position Statement

The Men’s Council affirms and conducts itself in accordance with the belief that people of all colors, nationalities and religions deserve respect and humane treatment. We welcome all who identify as male to join us in making that ideal possible

We mourn the death of our dear brother, Doug Lester. Doug was an original founder and promoter of men’s organizations and work in the Triangle and North Carolina. We will sorely miss his energy, commitment and passion for what The Men’s Council is and does.
