100 Black Men of Metro New Orleans
The mission of the 100 Black Men of Metro New Orleans, Inc. is to provide support and improve the quality of life for African Americans, and youth in particular, in New Orleans. The Chapter addresses four key areas to strengthen the future of our community: Mentoring, Education, Health and Wellness and Economic Empowerment. The Brothers of the 100 focus educational and economic resources toward our city's students and future leaders to empower the city's challenged communities.
The Metro New Orleans chapter is a coalition of some of New Orleans' most committed men, who strive to empower the city's challenged communities.
The 100 Black Men's programs are based on a simple principle: Through sustained mentoring programs, young people realize their potential. The 100 Black Men of America trains it members, who are all volunteers, using a curriculum entitled Mentoring the 100 Way,® which stresses the long term commitment required and teaches effective and innovative mentoring concepts. Mentoring the 100 Way focuses on developing our mentees from elementary school to career. "Four For The Future" represents the four areas in which the 100 delivers their core programmatic initiatives. These programs focus areas are designed to inspire youth, their families and members from the communities in which they live to develop self-reliance, to achieve immediate and long-term goals and to strive for excellence.
