Education should be learner centered!
Education should inspire, motivate, build character and promote integrity.
We like to say...
"What they see is what they'll be"
The desire to pursue higher education should not be extinguished due to lack of either funding or the college preparation that makes students better candidates for college acceptance.
Over the years, The 100 Black Men of Macon Georgia, has invested considerable effort towards closing the achievement gap in academics between African American youth and their peers in other ethnic groups. Our college-prep initiatives address the quality and quantity of information, resources, and tools available to all youth.
We have provided free ACT/SAT practice exams, reduced-priced exam prep courses, college campus visitation, workshops on preparing for, and funding a college education. In addition, we host the largest College Scholarship Fair targeting African American and Latino students in the Macon-Middle Georgia area, drawing busloads of students from 24 Central Georgia Counties as far as Dooley, Telfair, Jasper, Taylor, and Chatham Counties. Additionally, we collaborate with the Georgia Department of Education, numerous Colleges Universities, and Fortune 500 Businesses as well as, The Mentors Project, Closing The Gap, and Scouts of America that helps provide youth services to all interested youth.
