Collegiate 100 ® - The Collegiate 100 is an auxiliary organization to 100 Black Men. The Collegiate 100 membership is drawn primarily from male African–American college students through chapters on university campuses across America.

The purpose of the Collegiate 100 is to implement the mentoring and tutoring programs of 100 Black Men. The participants assist the parent organization with the development of the social, emotional, educational, and physical needs of youth who have few or no positive role models in the communities in which they live.

Each Collegiate 100 chapter has an advisor from the faculty or staff of the college or university where the chapter is located. Each advisor must remain active in the local Chapter of 100 Black Men to ensure that the program operates efficiently and effectively.

Below are samples of unique and innovative mentoring programs being delivered by 100 Black Men throughout the network.


In Cleveland, mentoring is provided to youth through a series of projects that service ages 7 through 21. Each project has certified mentors and role models utilizing a life skills curriculum that promotes self-discipline, respect, educational excellence, achievement, personal responsibility and career exposure. Activities include:
  • 100 Black Men of Tomorrow (fourth- through six-graders)
  • Finance Academy (tenth- through twelfth graders)
  • Youth Entrepreneurship Project (17- 21 years olds who are out of school)
  • Youth Opportunities Project (tenth- through twelfth graders)

The scope of the mentoring program is to develop a positive self-perception, identify SMART career goals, develop a personal brand, develop skills to influence others and build and manage a support network. These programs expose students to role models in the 100 Black Men of Greater Cleveland, Inc. and new ways of thinking about how they approach life, academic and career development and leadership. Additional programs include:

John F. Kennedy School of Urban Leadership Mentoring Project and the JFK Premier Men
The program provides multiple opportunities for students to observe leadership skills in action, develop awareness of qualities of civic responsibilities, explore career opportunities through classroom participation and career shadowing, where possible. Civic leadership and responsibility focuses on the importance of participating in and giving back to the community. Career exploration focuses on exploring the many options students have for careers that allow them to take leadership.

100 Black Men of Tomorrow
The 100 Black Men of Tomorrow is the 1 to 1 community based mentoring program of the 100 Black Men of Greater Cleveland, Inc. The program is designed for young men in the 4th through 12th grades. The goal of the program is to develop young men who understand the beneficial importance of positive thinking, responsible personal conduct, respect for self and others, educational achievement and cultural enrichment.

To accomplish this goal and to help develop a group of future leaders, the curriculum includes a series of sessions that take place throughout the school year. During these sessions, volunteer mentors, tutors and presenters share their knowledge and experience with the young men on life skills projects, engage them in athletic activities and accompany them on group field trips. Young people in this program also engage in community service projects, serve as peer counselors and compete in academic projects both locally and nationally. The regular group sessions are planned for the 2nd and 3rd Saturday morning of each month, from September through June at the downtown Cleveland YMCA.

100 Training Academy
The 100 Training Academy provides professional, state of the art mentoring training utilizing educational instruction, best practices in the field of mentoring, as well as psycho-educational workshops grounded in a theoretical basis. The goal of the 100 Training Academy is to provide ongoing support as it relates to the 100 Black Men of Greater Cleveland, Inc. mentoring program and initiatives. The vision is to create a standard of national excellence in the professional development and training of organizations, groups, and individuals in innovative program development and effective mentoring concepts.

The Me I Can Be is a community-orientated mentoring and education program, offering structured group mentoring for boys & girls from 10 to 15 years old. The 100 Black Men of London (100 BMOL) seek to assist African-Caribbean youths by providing leadership development workshops, motivational workshops and cultural enrichment and community activities. The students of the program participate in Saturday Academies in a series of two-hour workshops designed to address and develop important life issues, such as self-identity, communication skills, social behavior, cultural exposure, business and entrepreneurship, male/female relationships, health and fitness, personal responsibility, Black history, substance abuse awareness and peer pressure.

Members of the organization and experts in the various fields present the workshops. Additionally, the students are provided an array of cultural and community enrichment activities. Educators, celebrities and achievers across many industries speak to mentees and participate in Q&A sessions. 100 BMOL’s mentoring program seeks to help the youth develop a sense of self-worth and pride, critical in overcoming the many social barriers that challenge them. The development of community-based mentoring programs such as The Me I Can Be, which offers guidance to African-Caribbean youth, is a critical and necessary strategy. Adult role models are also a direct positive influence for inspiring and redirecting males who are at risk of dropping out of school, thus limiting their life choices and increasing their odds of being incarcerated as adults. The community programs offered by 100 Black Men of London, Inc. are 100% free of charge.


In cooperation with a targeted Orange County School District, the program identifies African American males in the beginning of their high school years (9th grade) and supports them through a four-year process of personal growth and exploration. Our objectives are to work with parents, public educators and community organizations to:

1. Guide African American male participants in establishing a clear and realistic understanding of adulthood.

2. Coach, mentor, and direct African American male participants along paths of self-exploration, improvement, and development, resulting in discoveries of latent creativity and a desire to excel.

3. Increase participants' expectations, academic skills and confidence in self, family, community and their education system.

Phase I: Personal and Social Development – Learning includes an exploration of knowledge of self, African and African American culture, history and achievements.

Phase II: Leadership, Mentoring and Team Building – Phase II provides mentoring support and builds on the year 1 foundation, promoting academic achievement and modeling leadership and team building.

Phase III: Economic Development and Community Service - Promotes the awareness and development of economic development and cooperation on an individual, team and community basis.

Phase IV: Development of Career Choices – Phase IV places emphasis on academic achievement, promotes an awareness of the diversity of career choices and further cultivates those skills needed to pursue dreams.


Saturday Leadership Academy

The purpose of the Saturday Leadership Academy (SLA) is to enhance school performance and to be a vehicle for African American youth in the Washington, DC Metropolitan Area that teaches personal goal setting and leadership skills. The program is designed to develop youth into leaders by inspiring them to identify personal dreams or goals and build action plans toward achieving them. Further, the SLA was established by our chapter to provide these youth with the information and skills necessary for academic success and productive citizenship. Another purpose of the SLA is to provide scholarship opportunities for young people. Through 100 BMOGW and its partners, SLA participants may apply for a scholarship in their senior year of high school. The SLA provides information and teaches skills on the following:
  • Financial planning
  • Health and wellness
  • Community service
  • Character
  • Etiquette
  • Technology education
  • Academic enrichment in the areas of math and science.
The SLA provides us the opportunity to collaborate with community leaders, business partners, educators, mental health professionals, and others seeking to build a stronger community and develop young minds.
