The 100 Black Men of America, Inc. has been educating and empowering youth for over three decades. The original concept of providing education and support to youth began with a group of African American men in New York in 1963 which has been 55 years. Today, hundreds of chapters work with local school systems, along with corporate and community partners, to deliver educational support services and unique learning opportunities that assist youth in achieving their educational goals.
As a leader in mentoring, educating and empowering youth, it was a natural progression for 100 Black Men to become partners and sponsors with schools. In some locations, 100 chapters have charted and are operating schools. The themes of achieving excellence and partnering with school boards, parents and the community resonates across all these schools. The 100’s education initiatives inspire confidence, create cultural awareness and foster academic leadership.
The 100’s health and wellness goals are to raise awareness, provide access to health care and give health information that will ultimately promote behavior change resulting in a healthier lifestyle. The organization’s Health & Wellness Committee provides leadership to chapters as they establish health & wellness committees at the local level.
Through civic and corporate partnerships, the 100 delivers health education programs and free health screenings in hundreds of communities annually.
