Programs

"Real men, giving real time."

The”100” has four major program components that underpin its operations. These “Four for the Future” areas cover Mentoring, Education, Health and Wellness, and Economic Empowerment.  The accomplishments made through these programs have gained the “100” broad recognition and helped the organization to become one of the nation’s leaders for mentoring African American Youth.

Mentoring

Mentoring is the cornerstone to all of the 100’s programming and the foundation of our local chapter’s premier initiative, the Saturday Leadership Academy (SLA). The SLA is an exciting opportunity for young men, 8th-12th grade, to interact with caring adult mentors who are members of the Greater Washington, D.C. chapter.

Education

The 100 believes that education is the key to opportunity and success. For this reason, we promote educational excellence and are committed to the encouragement of young people to thrive in this area of their lives. Reaching out into our communities, we provide scholarships and numerous tutoring programs while members take an active role in primary and secondary education.

Health & Wellness

Health and Wellness is a vital component of a thriving community. The purpose of the 100’s Health & Wellness program is to raise the awareness levels concerning healthcare issues in the African American community. To achieve such awareness, the 100 Black Men of Greater Washington, DC partners with various organizations to promote a variety of health and wellness issues such as health screenings, drug and HIV/AIDS prevention, teen pregnancy prevention, Diabetes and Prostate Cancer awareness.

Economic Empowerment

The 100 Black Men of Greater Washington DC aims to develop programs that address the economic underdevelopment of the African American community – programs designed to promote savings, home ownership and entrepreneurship. Our goal is to instill positive economic values in young people and encourage adults to realize their full economic potential.
