What They See Is What They'll Be

More Than a Motto

What They See Is What They’ll Be is more than a motto. It is a source of motivation for all members in our 100 Black Men chapter network. Our motto serves as a constant reminder that we must consistently commit ourselves to personifying the type of people our children will look up to and emulate. We fully embrace the immense responsibility we have to our mentees and our communities.

The National Collegiate 100 Conference

Members of the 100 Black Men of Triangle East and local students of the Collegiate 100 (C100) attended the National Collegiate 100 Conference in Atlanta, Ga, October 6th - 9th. This was the first, in-person collegiate conference since Covid.
We had nine (9) students attend the conference. Giovanni Simms, Duke C100 President, served as the emcee for the Social Media Breakfast, and Terry Waller, ECU C100 Treasurer, provided the invocation. CJ Guion, a member of the National Collegiate 100 Committee, and Dereck Rabun assisted with registration, set up, and chaperones for the Collegiate 100 students.
The purpose of the conference is to give C100 students an opportunity to network with other chapters across the nation and collaborate on ideas to take back and strengthen their local chapters. In addition, the members attend sessions on business dinner etiquette, mental health workshops, learn tips to build generational wealth, and learn how to create their own seat at the table.

Our Programs

Four for the Future: our programs have been improving the lives of Black youth in North Carolina since 1997. We aspire to be a beacon of leadership by utilizing our diverse talents to create an environment where our children can thrive.

Mentoring the 100 Way is one of the signature programs of 100 Black Men of America. Our mentors are trained to holistically address the social, emotional, and cultural needs of youth in grades 6–12.

Education is a cornerstone of our mission since it unlocks opportunities for young people. This program reinforces the importance of scholarship and provides support to help students set and meet academic goals.

We expose Black youth to financial literacy, fiscal responsibility, investment management, and entrepreneurship to lay a firm foundation for generational wealth. We strive to leave a legacy that makes our children's dreams attainable.

The health and wellness program prioritizes the physical, psychological, emotional, and spiritual well-being of the communities we serve by providing access to healthcare and wellness information.

The Collegiate 100 of North Carolina Central University and East Carolina University are made up of college students that share our commitment and assist with our mentoring and empowerment mission.

Sponsors Spotlight

We are so grateful to have such supportive Sponsors. Each month we will highlight Partner(s) that enable 100 Black Men of Triangle East to stay true to their mission.

My son wore the tie that was graciously given to him during the how to tie a tie session and tied it himself. He said it’s more than just a tie because it was also worn by his mentor, whom he admires greatly. He was certain that it would increase his confidence and he did a great job. I am so proud of him and his efforts. Thank you for all that you do to improve the lives of our youth.
