Message from the President:
51 years ago, African-American leaders in New York City came together and set out to make a difference in young men's lives. They realized an organization could affect its community's future by directing resources at youth development and mentorship.
As the current President of the 100 Black Men of Sacramento, I am committed to the growth and development of the youth of our community. It is m belief that Leadership and Role Models are needed to insure our youth achieve the growth and development needed for them to be successful throughout their lives.
To accomplish this, we as an organization must work more closely with other Community Organizations, Businesses and Community Leaders. Partnering with like organizations and Leaders we can show the youth of our Community that “What they See is What they can Be”. In addition, collaborating with other organizations will allow us to reach a larger number of youth.
In addition to our Mentoring Program, we are engaged in Health and Wellness and Economic Empowerment. We feel it is important to aid in the development of our youth in these areas to make a positive impact in their lives and the lives of other youth in our Community. We do this by teaching our youth the importance of responsible Financial decision-making and living a healthy lifestyle.
As President of the 100 Black Men of Sacramento, it is my belief that our organization can impact the lives of the youth in our community in a positive way.
