nation’s top African American led mentoring organization.
They share that not all youth are born with privilege,
opportunities, or a positive network. Some are raised throughout
their lives thinking they’ll never be able to live the life they’ll

surround themselves every single day. Every African-American person
should have the ability to create the life they’ve always wanted
and that’s what The 100 Black Men of America, Inc. provides.

formed to assist in delivering the education and empowerment needed
to change the course of these children’s lives. This is done

mentoring and developing young people into future leaders by

our programmatic initiatives is what drives them. They are
able to help shape their mentees realize their potential by showing
them how to be successful and significant, while stressing the
importance of obtaining and applying education, and by providing
them the tools that empower them for self-sufficiency, cultivated
civic, and business leadership.
