Mentoring is the cornerstone of what the organization brings to the community by guiding youth in life experiences, fostering a positive self-perception, self-respect, encouraging excellence in education, and the pursuit of positive life-long goals.
We develop and foster relationships between members of the 100 Black Men of Los Angeles, the See Your Future Female Mentoring Program, Young Black Scholars and Community Partners, in order that this relationship would lead to heightened self-esteem for the girls through improved family relations, academic success, social and financial responsibility.
Our community-based mentoring program meets during the school year from January through May on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month via Zoom and on the campus of West Los Angeles College.
Participating in the 100 Black Men of Los Angeles Young Black Scholars Program was beneficial to my development as a leader, student, and entrepreneur. During my time in the program, I participated in college planning and standardized test preparation classes and finance and entrepreneurship workshops. I developed several successful business plans that won first place in local, regional, and national competitions. Furthermore, I formed lifelong connections with the 100 Black Men mentors who care about the success of every student.
