100 Black Men of Greater Washington, D.C. (100 BMGWDC) was founded in 1995 in response to the call to action voiced during the Million Man March. A group of eleven professional Black men, concerned about the future of the youth in their community, came together and decided that it was their responsibility to step up and make a difference. Following the model of 100 Black Men of America, Inc., they established the Greater Washington, D.C. chapter as a member of the national organization.
Over the years the organization has grown in membership and status. With a dedicated and diverse membership base, including doctors, lawyers, STEM professionals, entrepreneurs, financial experts, teachers, educators, and business professionals, the organization is able to provide a broad range of support to its mentees.
Through our Four for the Future programmatic framework of Mentoring, Education, Economic Empowerment, and Health & Wellness, we’ve had the privilege of working with youth in the greatest need to help them establish, and achieve their goals. Since our founding in 1995 we have been able to serve over 14,000 children and families within our local community.
