philosophy

Mana Toa links young adults to safe and supportive communities that help sleeping “warriors” awaken and realize purpose and potential. Our trained team supports individuals as they shift toward healthy living, replacing maladaptive behaviors with real-life positive coping skills, discovering self-esteem building pursuits, and serving those around them. The Mana Toa men continually seek to improve themselves, and ultimately their communities benefit.

our approach

We use proven methods to positively guide young men into their adult lives – leveraging their personal strengths to develop autonomy and direction. Every student we work with is his own person with his own experiences, so together we develop a plan that is unique, effective, and exciting specifically for him. Combining our pillars of Education, Vocation, Employment, Adventure and Daily Living Skills, we can develop the strategy that is right for you or your loved one. Mana Toa provides extensive opportunities for personal growth, fun, community engagement, new skills, and ultimately freedom within a safe and healthy environment.
