Mentoring is the cornerstone of 100 Black Men of America, Inc. (The 100) and its network of over 100 Chapters. The social, cultural, emotional, and unique needs of youth, primarily African American males, are addressed through one-to-one and group mentoring relationships by 100 Black Men chapter members.
EDUCATION is the key to opportunity and is embedded in the mission of our organization. The 100 has been mentoring African American youth for more than 50 years and knows the importance of education to one’s life trajectory and the ability to achieve dreams.
HEALTH & WELLNESS is a vital component of a successful individual and a thriving community. The 100 focuses on the well-being of the whole person: physical, emotional, psychological, and spiritual through initiatives.
LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT and the cultivation of our next generation of leaders is a worthwhile investment. 100 Black Men of America continues to prepare youth and young adults who can lead the way and become the next generation of global leaders.
ECONOMIC EMPOWERMENT is necessary to create a just society, for without empowerment there is no self-sufficiency. 100 Black Men of America, Inc. promotes and fosters the ability of its mentees and members to be self-determined in creating dreams, pursuing them and ultimately perpetuating those dreams and aspirations by establishing the mechanisms to sustain generational wealth.
