Mentoring the 100 Way is one of the signature programs of the 100 Black Men of America, Inc.
This holistic program addresses the social, emotional and cultural needs of children ages 12-18. 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.
Workshops for children and youth include topics such as:
- Positive Self Identity and Personal Vision
- Life Skills
- Social and Emotional Skills
- Moral Character
- Work Ethic
- Lifelong Learning
Mentoring the 100 Way uses three different techniques:
- 1:1 Mentoring
- Group Mentoring
- Tag Team Mentoring
All techniques focus on being S.M.A.R.T.
- Specific: Specific and clearly defined mentoring population
- Measurable: Measure and evaluate effectiveness
- Attainable: Setting goals that are attainable for the children and mentors
- Realistic: Goals should be realistic (makes sense to the mentee)
- Target Driven: The chapter should have a set target of pursuit
