100 Black Men of Greater Cleveland

Since 1998, the 100 Black Men of Greater Cleveland, Inc. has followed its mission of providing services for African Americans in urban Cleveland and East Cleveland neighborhoods. Our organization works to identify, examine and address issues affecting our community. Our programs focus primarily on youth – creating mentoring situations and activities that help break cycles of violence that black youth frequently experience in the home and in their local communities. The absence of positive black male role models in the home is negatively affecting our youth. Mentoring is the first important step in the 100’s outreach process. Building trust among young black men with examples of positive relationships is the 100’s focus as it delivers its programs. Although the 100’s programs are open to all Greater Cleveland African American youth, the organization recognizes that the most desperate need exists in Cleveland’s urban areas.
