ECONOMIC EMPOWERMENT

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. Through comprehensive curricula and training opportunities, our organization works diligently to promote economic self-sufficiency and break the cycle of generational debt. It is the goal of The 100 to leave a legacy of wealth-building which leads to debt-free living for the youth and communities we serve.

Our economic empowerment programs and initiatives foster financial literacy, career development, financial planning, investment management, and fiscal responsibility at an early age. Exposing our youth and collegiate students to the skills, strategies and mindset of entrepreneurship also provide beneficial, transferrable knowledge that will help to establish a firm foundation from which they can later build upon for business development and wealth creation. The words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. resonate as profoundly today as they did in 1967 when he declared, “The dignity of the individual will flourish when the decisions concerning his life are in his own hands; when he has the means to seek self-improvement.”
