Welcome!

Welcome to Central Illinois chapter of the 100 Black Men!

The Central Illinois Chapter of the 100 Black Men of America, Inc. has grown over the years and continues to be committed to making a difference in the lives of young people, especially young African Americans. One of our programs, the “Mentoring for Life” program, is the very corner stone of the good work we do in our community. We are involved with local scholarship programs that award money to the brightest students for continuing education. We also hold an annual health & wellness breakfast and are involved in many community partnerships that support financial literacy as well as education.
