The overall concept of the 100 began in New York in 1963 when a group of concerned African American men began to meet to explore ways of improving conditions in their community. The group eventually adopted the name, "100 Black Men, Inc." as a sign of solidarity.
The 100 Black Men of Tallahassee Area, Inc. helps to empower youth in our community to make positive life choices that enable them to maximize their potential.
The mentoring program uses adult volunteers to commit to supporting, guiding, and being a friend to a young person for a period of at least one year.
By becoming part of the social network of adults and community members who care about the youth, the mentor can help youth develop and reach positive academic, career, and personal goals.
