The National Organization of the 100 Black Men of America, Inc. continues to oversee the coordination, review and dissemination of information that informs the 100 membership about issues that impact the intellectual, emotional, behavioral, and spiritual development of our youth. The organization will seek to identify the correlates of achievement that are most consistently identified with educational excellence and shape those ideas to fit each chapter’s respective community.
The 100 is responsible for encouraging and facilitating the development of programmatic initiatives that address the educational needs of the youth and those of the larger community. Additionally, 100 Black Men of Chattanooga, Inc. is committed to the growth and development of Chattanooga's youth. To further promote excellence in talented young Americans as they pursue higher education goals, the 100 endeavors to provide scholarships to hundreds of deserving college students on an equal opportunity basis regardless of race, sex, creed, or religious preference. The mentoring component provides an opportunity to identify potential scholarship applicants.
