  • 3 people are interested

100 Black Men of Sacramento (BMoS) is a non-profit, 501(c) 3 organization (Federal Employee Identification Number 94-1698065) that formed in 1986 as an affiliate chapter of the 100 Black Men of America (100 BMOA). 100 BMOS utilizes its diverse talents to create an environment that enables mentees to be motivated to achieve and be empowered to become self-sufficient stakeholders in the economic and social fabric of the community they reside. 100 BMOS is committed to the intellectual development of youth and the economic empowerment of the Sacramento community based on the following precepts: respect for family, spirituality, justice, and integrity.

The 100 Black Men of Sacramento programs are based on a simple principle: Mentoring young people to realize and reach their fullest potential. 100 BMOS has created programs that have empowered thousands of mentees to become self-sufficient and responsible stakeholders in the economic and social dynamics of their communities. 100 BMOS programs are focused in the areas of mentoring, education, economic empowerment, and health and wellness. Through a systematic process of group mentoring, workshops, and conferences, 100 BMOS improves the quality of life and enhances the educational achievement of Sacramento's underserved.

The organization sponsors group mentoring programs at high schools throughout the Sacramento area. Members of the organization meet with and plan programs for students at Hiram Johnson, Kennedy, Rio Linda, Florin, McClatchy, Franklin and Valley Schools. Expansion of the program to other high schools is under consideration. Two elementary schools, Harkness Elementary and John Still, have been included in the program but more are planned.

The organization sponsors a well planned and organized series of presentations on issues of importance to African American male students and their parents. Originally limited to selected group of students, the Forum is now open to all students who care to participate.

Issues explored at the forums include the always difficult challenge of male/female relationships and the topic of law enforcement policies as they impact on young African American males. Each year the 100 Black Men in cooperation with Kappa Alpha Psi and other interested organizations sponsors a day long conference designed to address timely issues of interest to young African American males.
