The original chapter, founded in New York City by J. Bruce Llewellyn in 1967, set an example to which all successive chapter aspire. In the early 1980s David Dinkins, then Manhattan Borough President and future mayor, focused national attention on this organization by referring to "The 100 Black Men of America, Inc." the name that remains with it today. In 1963, the same year that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. gave his famous "I Have a Dream" speech, the first meeting of the 100 Black Men of America was held in New York City. A group of successful businessmen from a variety of social, educational and economic sectors came together for the common purpose of making a difference in African American communities - by making a difference in the lives of African American youth. The idea quickly caught on and soon independent chapter began forming across the nation until 1986 when nine individual chapters joined together to create the alliance known today as the "100 Black Men of America, Inc.". Now some 73 chapters and 10,000 members strong and still growing, the 100 Black Men of America, Inc. remains committed to it's founding mission: To increase the quality of life in African American communities by improving the educational, economic and social status of African Americans across the entire nation. Dedicated members of the 100 Black Men of America have provided influences for more than 60,000 youth across the nation through leadership, education, mentoring and motivation. The 100 Black Men of America's "Four for the Future" signature programs consists of the following: * Mentoring * Education * Health and Wellness * Economic Development

Mission: "To develop socially conscious, responsible, and respectable African American males, who recognize their potential and the enormous possibilities for achieving educational, career and life goals." In order to achieve the above stated mission, the Passport to the Future Program is designed to guide young African American male participants in developing a crystallized definition of adulthood, free of personal and media promoted distortions. The guidance process will direct the young men along paths of self exploration and discovery, aim at revealing to the young men hidden creativity and their propensities for excellence. The Program is purposefully designed to explicate latent architects, engineers, aviators, scholars and inventors within these young African American males. The Passport to the Future is the ideal program for identifying, guiding and developing the hidden genius of young African American males. The Program objectives are as follows: * Increase participants' level of cultural awareness and knowledge * Increase participants' level of self-esteem * Reduce the potential for participants involvement in gang related activities * Provide alternative incentives to choosing high-risk behaviors (e.g., illegal substance use, abuse, teen parenting, etc.) * Increase participants' awareness of social issues within their communities ] * Increase participants' interest and involvement in religious and spiritual growth activities * Increase participants' involvement in community cultural events * Increase participants' willingness to positively mentor his friends and siblings In order to realize the above objectives, students from Orange County area high schools will be recruited to participate in the program. After students have been selected for the program, they will be enrolled in the Passport to the Future for a four (4) year, sequential academic and experiential curriculum: Phase I (9th grade) - Personal and Social Development (Rites of Passage) Phase II (10th grade) - Leadership, Mentorship, and Team Building Phase III (11th grade) - Economic Development and Community Service (Internship I) Phase IV (12th grade) - Development of Career Choices (Internship II)
