What We Do
The 100 is committed to the intellectual development of our youth and the empowerment of the African-American community based on the following precepts: respect for family, spirituality, justice and integrity.
Members, volunteers and staff have leveraged resources to develop a system based on Mentoring through Education, Health & Wellness, and Economic Empowerment programs. We believe that if we focus our efforts on these core areas, we ultimately will create a foundation of success for our youth and community.
The 100 was established in 1995 when a group of concerned men realized that the survival of the Omaha community rested on their willingness to join together and be a vehicle for positive change. Today the 100 is one of over 100 chapters internationally that make up the 100 Black Men of America, an alliance of African-American men from a myriad of professions including community leaders, business executives, entrepreneurs, elected officials and educators.
