What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

San Antonio has made progress in closing opportunity gaps for youth of color overall. However, the progress can mask the declining outcomes for males. For example, while the percent of young Bexar County Latinos with an associate degree or higher has increased over the last 5 years, the figure has actually decreased for young Latino young boys. Furthermore, there is a 6% gap in the high school graduation rates of young boys of color versus their white male peers. When we review the high school graduation gap for young black boys in comparison to their white male counterparts, it nearly doubles.

In Bexar County, young boys of color are more likely to be victims of violent crime than white males. Young men of color are also more likely to be out of school and unemployed than their white peers. In light of these challenges, it's important to ensure that local services and interventions specifically address the needs of young boys of color. Yet, according to a survey of hundreds of

Young Men of Color Leadership Academy

The Young Men of Color Leadership Academy's purpose is to make a difference in the lives of young men of color through mentoring, education, economic empowerment, and health & wellness initiatives that promote community involvement and builds high levels of self-esteem in tomorrow's leaders.

We measure the program's success by tracking student grades, behavior in school, suspension rates, and on time graduation rates.

Mentoring the 100 Way® - A holistic mentoring program that addresses the social, emotional and cultural needs of children ages 8-18. Members of the 100 receive a certificate of training to become mentors, advocates, and role models for the youth within their communities. Through chapter operated one-on-one and group mentoring efforts, our members forge relationships that positively impact our greatest resource: our youth. The program focuses on building essential skills needed to become productive, contributing citizens.

100 Scholarship Program

The 100 Black Men of San Antonio, Inc. provides annual scholarship awards to deserving matriculating students who will be full-time students at accredited, post-secondary institutions based on 100 Black Men of America, Inc. eligibility criteria. Scholarship dollars assist youth in completing educational goals by providing resources to offset expenses associated with tuition, books and housing. The scholarship program allows the 100 to identify potential youth leaders in our local communities and motivates them to achieve academic and community service excellence.

Partnerships with corporations, foundations and individuals ensure continued sponsorship of our scholarship efforts. Local chapters are extremely important in promoting the ongoing needs of the national scholarship goals in local communities by showcasing the academic excellence and intellect among our youth and cultivating relationships with businesses.

We measure success by the number and dollar value of scholarships we are able to provide each year. We also look at the number of students that graduate who were recipients of our scholarships.

Health & Wellness Leadership Initiative

The purpose of this program is to harness the strength of African American organizations as well as other community organizations from around our community and the nation as we educate to Fight HIV and AIDS, heart disease, obesity, and other debilitating health issues that plaque under-served communities throughout the nation. We stress the importance of healthy eating and living habits as a way to foster improved health and long life for everyone in the community, especially African Americans.

We measure success by examining the number of people our message and program are able to reach. By surveying participants and asking if the information was helpful and asking participants to share which elements of the program and information they incorporated into the daily lives.
