The heart and soul of MDI in Massachusetts and New England resides in our men's teams, where teams of men gather to listen, to advise, and to support each other. We also offer larger events to support each other in our success in relationships, with our families, in our careers and in our communities. You may also visit or for more information about our circle of men.

Jawbone and Backbone are both circles of men affiliated with MDI which is an organization in the United States and Canada.

We inspire men to pursue a purpose larger than themselves; while we recognize that, to be effective, men must confront their life challenges and personal demons, we do not seek to devote our time focusing solely on the individual.

We empower men by providing them with the tools they need to succeed. These tools are discovered and put into use in weekend trainings or weekly courses, one-on-one mentoring or weekly team meetings. As an organization we believe that true wisdom comes not from a single source but from the diverse viewpoints of our community of men.

We pursue our passion by being in relationship with the men of our team; they provide the inspection, feedback and support necessary to get the job done. When we stumble, our teammates are there to get us back on our feet, brush us off, and ensure we have learned the lessons from a setback or challenge before we get back into the game.

When we realize our passion, and then start to manifest it, we have a circle of men to celebrate with. These men acknowledge our victories and the unique qualities we bring to the world; this allows us to continue to carry our personal legacy forward to our families and communities.

In a nutshell: We are unconditionally committed to men winning in their lives.
