The ManKind Project United Kingdom and Ireland (MKPUK&I) is a charity run principally by unpaid staff who volunteer their time. Hosting a New Warrior Training Adventure Weekend (NWTA) requires months of preparation and logistics which all require money. Those costs include the rental of the facilities, food, materials and the costs of bringing MKP Certified Leaders and Co-Leaders to lead your weekend. That is why your tuition for the NWTA is as it is.
We require that your tuition is handled prior to you arriving for the weekend. In fact, most men who understand our refund policy are comfortable paying the entire tuition when they enroll. Our refund policy which we ask all participants to agree to, is as follows:
Less Than 48 Hours Notice: If you give less than 48 hours’ notice that you will not attending, and we are unable to fill your place then no refund will be given for your tuition – obviously exceptional circumstances will be considered.
Do Not Show Up for the Weekend – No Refund: No refund will be granted if you fail to come to the NWTA that you have signed up for.
Do Not Complete the Weekend – No Automatic Refund: The weekend begins on Friday between 5.30pm and 6pm and ends by 4pm on Sunday. If you leave the weekend prior to the Sunday Closing Ceremony, no automatic refund will be granted and the circumstances of your leaving will need to be reviewed. If you do leave, you will, however, be permitted to attend another MKP-UK NWTA (within one year of the training you left) to complete your training at no extra cost, provided there is an open spot for you.
Complete the Weekend and Want a Refund: If you complete the NWTA through to the Sunday Closing Ceremony but are not satisfied and want your money back- provided the following criteria are met:
- Tuition has been paid in full, or all agreements met prior to commencement of the Training.
- You have been in attendance the full time for each of the three days of the Training.
- You have participated in all of the exercises of the Training.
You will receive a refund of your paid tuition, provided that you request a refund in writing (e-mail is okay), together with your full reasons for doing so, to the Community Director within 7 days of the Sunday Closing Ceremony of your NWTA.
