The Role of the Elder in MKP is to speak the truth, to stand for higher values and strong standards of behavior, and to draw the line against counterproductive behavior.
The Role of the Elder is giveaway – giving, serving, honoring, blessing and being the bearer of gifts for others and freely giving them in support of others.
One Role of the Elder is to stand in responsible support of the ManKind Project, it’s leaders and it’s Center Leadership. The MKP Elder honors and respects men who lead and he stands firmly against improper attacks on leaders. At the same time, the Elder is the one who is often most qualified to watch for shadows and call Center leaders on any inappropriate behavior.
