The 100 Black Men of America, Inc. is recognized as the 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 want. This is because of the environment and the people who they 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.
 
Committing ourselves to personify the type of people our children will look up to and emulate, we embrace the immense responsibility we have to our mentees and our communities. Providing these children another choice in life by being around like minded individuals who have similar aspirations and goals. 
 
As they have grown, more companies and programs have been formed to assist in delivering the education and empowerment needed to change the course of these children’s lives. This is done through the 100’s Four For The Future focus areas; Mentoring, Education, Health & Wellness, and Economic Empowerment.
 
Through the expansion, they have created 100 Black Men Chapters that deliver unique programs that address specific needs in local communities. Through 57 years of testing, they've created the 100’s successful model, which is a proven blueprint for mentoring and developing young people into future leaders by surrounding themselves with a positive network and giving them the opportunity that they may not have thought was possible.
 
Their ongoing commitment to continuously improve and implement 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.
 
Now the time has arrived for The 100 Black Men of America to launch chapters in North Carolina, specifically in the Triad.  This effort is being led by Larry Burtnett Sr. and Nate Branscomb.
