MENTORING

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. Committed to our cause, our members serve as positive role models, advocates, and trusted advisors to children and young adults, including the Collegiate 100® and the Emerging 100®, in their local communities. The 100’s signature mentoring program is an effective, evidenced-based and strategic intervention that helps youth reach their full potential and become contributing members of society. The miracles of mentoring impact over 125,000 lives annually and change communities.

Mentoring the 100 Way Across a Lifetime®, sustained mentor relationships of at least a school year and often over multiple years, can happen at all stages of a mentee’s life, including college and beyond. The unique, innovative mentoring initiatives of our Chapters are locally relevant and vary by affiliate. Our volunteer members are comprised of servant leaders and professionals from diverse sectors and backgrounds who truly believe in our motto, “What They See Is What They’ll Be®.” As the lives of our mentees are transformed through our mentoring model, so are the lives of mentors who serve them.

Our innovative Online Mentor Training and interactive Virtual Mentee Curriculum are proprietary web-based tools available only to 100 Black Men Chapter members, mentees and their authorized network of volunteers, Collegiate 100® and Emerging 100® members. Both tools are password protected and unauthorized use is strictly prohibited. Upon satisfactory completion of the five-module Online Mentor Training program, Certificates of Completion are issued by Headquarters. The five-module Mentee Curriculum has student pre- and post-tests, S.M.A.R.T. goals exercises, as well as Mentor Guides for each module to assist facilitators with the lessons and corresponding activities.
