100 Black Men of Sacramento (BMSAC) 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 (BMoA). 100 BMSAC 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 BMSAC 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.


100 BMSAC has created programs that have empowered more than 2,000 mentees to become self-sufficient and responsible stakeholders in the economic and social dynamics of their communities. 100 BMSAC programs are focused in the areas of mentoring, education, economic empowerment, and health and wellness. Through a systematic process of one-on-one mentoring, group mentoring, workshops, and conferences, 100 BMSAC improves the quality of life and enhances the educational achievement of Sacramento's underserved.


100 BMSAC guides mentees throughout their lifetimes to assist them in achievement of excellence in education, health and wellness awareness, economic empowerment, and leadership development. Its dedicated membership of "Real Men Giving Real Time" through its Mentoring the 100 Way curriculum and programmatic initiatives makes a holistic and sustainable impact on the quality of the youth, families, and communities that it serves.

Mission

The 100 BMSAC mission is to enhance educational and economic opportunities for underrepresented youth, and to improve the quality of life for all within our community. Through a systematic process of group mentoring, workshops, and conferences, 100 BMSAC is able to enhance the educational achievement of youth in the community it serves. 100 BMSAC' primary goal is to promote the educational achievement for the underserved communities in the greater Sacramento region.

Needs

The 100 BMSAC Saturday Academy, at Natomas High School within the Natomas School district, features the 100 Black Men of America's signature core mentoring program: Mentoring the 100 Way® Across a Lifetime. This program occurs bi-weekly at the school throughout the school year. The Saturday Academy is designed to serve sixth through twelfth grade students. Mentoring the 100 Way® Across A Lifetime, seeks to address systemic issues and bridge opportunity gaps for marginalized African American youth. This platform provides a comprehensive structure through which the organization's volunteer network provides community-wide youth programming and services through face-to-face mentoring. In addition to youth, the Natomas Unified School District community served by 100 Black Men of Sacramento reaps tangible benefits from the increased academic performance, attendance, and behavior of the students (mentees) involved in the program.

Funding Uses

1. $2,000 for meals. Breakfast and lunch for program participants.

2. $3,000 for robotics and coding equipment.

3. $3,000 for quarterly enrichment event transportation; field trips to companies and events to expand the mentees horizons outside of their neighborhood.

The Youth 100 component is designed for fifth through eighth grade male and female students. The Youth 100 tutor's students in mathematics and English and provides motivational support that will guide mentees to high school graduation. On a monthly basis, teams of certified mentors provide services to mentees.

This series of extended learning opportunities is uniquely designed to help mentees explore additional advanced topics and cultivate their minds. All Mentoring the 100 Way techniques are developed using specific, measurable, reasonable, and testable goals and utilize the following mentoring relationship models:

1. Group Mentoring

2. Tag Team Mentoring

3. Peer to Peer Mentoring

Mentoring the 100 Way provides an approach to prepare Sacramento's underserved community students for their post-secondary careers through partnerships, research, and rigorous adherence best practices. Through this extended learning opportunity, mentees receive additional time and assistance to discover their talents, form positive friendships, and connect with their community. Participants receive additional support from certified teachers to master concepts in reading, writing and mathematics. The program aligns with the following goals and objectives:

1. Prepares mentees for their post-secondary careers.

2. Improves mentees' academic grade point average.

3. Increases mentees' graduation rates.

4. Increases mentees awareness of health and wellness concepts.

5. Increases mentees' leadership and life skills.

6. Empowers mentees to see themselves as individuals who can make a positive impact in their own lives, their families, and in their communities.

Capacity Building - This is an area where donations can have a positive impact on our organization. In order for the 100 BMSAC to play a major role in the development of young African American males and females in the Greater Sacramento region, we need the necessary resources to implement our Mentoring the 100 Way programs that have been effective in reversing the negative effects of living in an environment that does not allow those in underserved communities to realize their true value and look toward the future with confidence. With an increase of our membership base, we can achieve our goal of approaching the SCUSD with a plan from a Nationally recognized organization that has affected the lives of over 100,00 young African American males and females nationwide.
