100 Black Men of Maryland | Programs



The 100 Black Men’s programs are based on a simple principle: Through sustained mentoring programs young people realize their potential. Mentoring is the platform the 100 uses to deliver its programs throughout our Chapter network. The 100 has been recognized by Presidents of the United States, foundations, school systems, business and community leaders, grateful parents, guardians and family members for its leadership and for creating, implementing and promoting mentoring as a critical transformative vehicle in the lives of youth.




The Collegiate 100 is an auxiliary organization to 100 Black Men. The Collegiate 100 membership is drawn primarily from male African–American college students through chapters on university campuses across America.

The purpose of the Collegiate 100 is to implement the mentoring and tutoring programs of 100 Black Men. The participants assist the parent organization with the development of the social, emotional, educational, and physical needs of young black males who have few or no positive role models in the communities in which they live.

Each Collegiate 100 chapter has an advisor from the faculty or staff of the college or university where the chapter iS located. Each advisor must remain active in the local Chapter of 100 Black Men to ensure that the program operates efficiently and effectively.



The 100 mentors youth through a worldwide network of chapters. Across the United States and Internationally, 100 Black Men of America, Inc. and 100 Black Men International are positively impacting the lives of tomorrow’s leaders through the 100’s signature programs such as Mentoring the 100 Way and Collegiate 100®. Chapters also deliver unique, innovative mentoring initiatives that are locally relevant and that change the lives of tens of thousands of youth annually.

Mentoring the 100 Way® – A holistic mentoring program that addresses the social, emotional and cultural needs of children ages 8-18. Members of the 100 are trained and certified to become mentors, advocates, and role models for the youth within their communities. Through chapter operated one-on-one and group mentoring efforts, our members forge relationships that positively impact our greatest resource: our youth. The program focuses on building essential skills needed to become productive, contributing citizens.





Pathways To Success



The Pathways to Success mentoring program presented by the 100 Black Men of America is changing lives through real talk and experiential business training for diverse young men and women. The outreach initiative was created in collaboration with Wells Fargo Corporate Supplier Diversity and launched locally as a pilot by the 100 Black Men of Charlotte. Due to the success of the pilot, Pathways to Success expanded into a national outreach program of the 100 Black Men of America. “Our goal through Pathways to Success is to help our young brothers and sisters become either successful entrepreneurs or corporate executives,” says Anthony C. Perez, assistant vice president of real estate at Carolinas HealthCare System and national program manager of Pathways to Success for the 100 Black Men of America.
