Donate Now to Where it’s Needed Most
The mission of 100 Black Men of the Bay Area, a GuideStar Gold 501 (c)(3) non-profit, is to improve the quality of life within the Bay Area community and to enhance educational and economic opportunities for disadvantaged, disenfranchised and low- income youth and families.
We are committed to helping those in our community make wiser health, lifestyle and economic decisions, and helping our youth create and accomplish educational goals that will lead to family-sustaining wages and long-term career and life success.
Our motto, “What They See Is What They’ll Be” refers to a “lead by example” approach that resonates with our youth who often lack the exposure or positive behavior modeling from caring and successful African American men. Your support will go directly towards positively impacting our community.
Donate Now to Mentoring
The 100’s signature Mentoring Program is an effective, evidence-based, and strategic intervention that helps youth reach their full potential and become contributing members of society. Combined with all of our Chapter’s mentoring efforts, 100 Black Men of the Bay Area has served as active mentors to over 1,500 students throughout the Bay Area. Your support will allow us to expand on these efforts.
Donate Now to Health & Wellness
Youth Movement is a Bay Area-wide initiative that harnesses the talent and resources of a variety of community organizations and local agencies to promote youth health and fitness. Through this program, we continue to:
Develop a model community-based fitness program for at-risk youth.
Develop healthy eating habits among children in low-income communities.
Provide mentoring to improve character development and increase academic success.
Establish youth athletic clubs in low-income communities and revitalize Bay Area after-school youth fitness/athletic programs.
In addition, your support will help send our elite track and field team to the International Children’s Games where they compete against children from 95 countries each year. To date, our team, The Black Wings, has brought home over 25 medals.
