For the last few millenia what you are describing has been called "a group of friends".

I've had been parts of lots of groups of friends, but very few of them have had self-improvement as an explicit goal, nor have they had mutual accountability and check-ups on each other. Most groups of friends just hang out without any particular purpose.
