What is a Gateway New Warrior Training Adventure?
A Gateway New Warrior Training uses the same globally respected protocols as a regular New Warrior Training Adventure. It is specially geared to meet the needs and life circumstances of a particular demographic. The training staff will be comprised of men who identify as members of the demographic, or who have special skills to meet the needs of the men participating.
