100 BLACK MEN OF GREATER CHARLOTTE INC Overview
Programs: The 100's Movement of Youth (MOY) program maintains about 50 mentees annually. They are encouraged to stay in school with the aim of graduating from high school and getting a post-secondary education. Saturday Academies (twice monthly group mentoring sessions), tutorial sessions in the stock market and investing as well as Black History, one-on-one mentoring, the 3.0 Club, job shadowing, and the scholarship program are components of MOY. A Special Education intervention component, the Wimberly Initiative, was started in 2,000 in partnership with Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools, the Policy Makers Partnership project of the National Association of State Directors of Special Education, and other State and local partners. The purpose is to establish a model program to reduce the number of Black and other minority males classified in certain special education categories. The focus is on 30 boys attending Briarwood Elementary School. Since Briarwood ES is a feeder school to Cochrane MS, the 100 Black Men of Charlotte is now involved in a seamless program for students from first grade through college.
