THE COLLEGIATE 100
Membership into the Collegiate 100 is drawn primarily from African–American male and female college students through Chapters on university campuses across America. Members of the Collegiate 100 will assist the local (Sponsoring) 100 Black Men Chapter with its programmatic initiatives that support the development of social, emotional, educational, and physical needs of youth who have few or no positive role models in the communities in which they live.
The Collegiate 100 program is not intended to create a separate functioning group that operates independently from the local Chapter of 100 Black Men of America, Inc. The right to use intellectual properties must be approved by the local Chapter through authorization from the National Headquarters.
The Collegiate 100, therefore, is not fraternal in nature and does not include the process of pledging or hazing to gain affiliation or membership. Rather, the Collegiate 100 adds value by serving as a core of service volunteers to help carry out the mission of the 100 Black Men of America, Inc. and support the activities of the sponsoring Chapter.
There is also added value for the members of the Collegiate 100 to be with like minded men and women who can support each other in their pursuit of a college degree and support each other in gaining valuable life skills.
