100 Black Men has four principal program areas: Mentoring, Education, Health and Wellness, Economic and Development
We provide youth mentoring that addresses the emotional and cultural needs of African American children aged 8 – 18. Our Members are trained to become mentors and advocates for youth who may have few or no other positive role models in their communities.
Health and Wellness
We have extensive programs which are designed to encourage physical fitness and healthy eating habits among youth as well as increasing public awareness of the specific health issues and risks facing African Americans (e.g. heart disease, hypertension, diabetes, sickle cell, etc.).
We seek to provide support services to schools and educators in the form of volunteerism, “teacher for a day” programs and extracurricular activities. This element also works to influence policy set at the local, state, and federal levels to ensure that all youth have equal access to education.
We seek to empower African American individuals and enterprises through financial literacy training, small business training and seminars, as well as forums to connect African American businesses with each other and to the larger community as a whole.
