100 Black Men of America, Inc. is committed to its community and citizens. Improving the
education outcomes of our youth at an early age leads to economic empowerment and helps to
change individual lives and entire communities, regions, states, and nations. The 100 grants
chapters funding to promote the 100’s position on increasing the number of high-performing public
schools in our communities for African American youth through 4 focus areas; particularly males,
a position that is aimed to increase education equity that leads to increased literacy and learning,
on-time grade-level advancements, and on-time high school graduation rates. Project SOAR, the
100’s education transformation initiative, is designed to improve the college and career readiness
of African American youth, without the need for remediation. The goal of this High-Quality Public
Education Awareness and Advocacy Initiative is to foster and facilitate dialogues in targeted
communities about the need for high-performing public-school options available and accessible
for African American youth.
The 2018-2019 EdChoice High-Quality Public Education Awareness and Advocacy Initiative was successfully facilitated by 19 participating chapters working with schools and community leaders in their service area.
