Project Success

Project Success is a post-secondary preparation and tuition assistance program that has been nationally recognized as a premier youth development initiative. Project Success started in 1987 and is dedicated to mentoring inner city youth living in at-risk environments, encouraging their academic success, and helping them develop into educated, contributing members of our community.

100 Black Men of Atlanta, Inc.’s Project Success program is open to U.S. students enrolled in the 3rd grade at Atlanta Public Schools located in the metro Atlanta area. In addition to meeting all admittance criteria, students must commit to full participation in the academic, social, cultural and recreational events associated with the program. The Parent or Guardian must also demonstrate strong and consistent involvement in the program.

The HBCU Alumni Atlanta community. Collectively, Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) total more than 100 institutions, enroll more than 370,000 students, graduate nearly 25% of all African-American undergraduate degrees and take account for over half of today’s African-American professionals.

Individually, we can boast of having in our ranks the first Time Magazine / Princeton Review College of the Year, producing the highest number of African-American Commissioned Officers, recruiting the largest number of National Merit Scholars, becoming the only college ever to be designated a national historic site, placing the largest number of African-Americans to medical school and much, much, more.

100 Black Men of Atlanta, Inc.

Stacks Image 882
In 1986, Atlanta-based entrepreneur, Nathaniel Goldston, assembled 18 of his friends and associates together to share the vision of starting a community empowerment organization that would focus on Atlanta’s underprivileged youth.  Goldston, who had been exposed to a similar concept during a business meeting in New York called One Hundred Black Men of New York, aptly named the newly formed coalition 100 Black Men of Atlanta, Inc.

100 Black Men of Atlanta was now one of eight 100 Black Men organizations based in cities around the nation.  Together these organizations joined forces to create 100 Black Men of America headquartered in Atlanta, which now has more than 100 chapters worldwide — with more than 10,000 members.  100 Black Men of Atlanta has grown to become one of the largest of these chapters, with over 200 members locally.

Through its programs to support Atlanta’s challenged communities, members have become actively involved in educational issues affecting youth, public policy, as well as economic, social and health issues impacting the communities it serves. The organization is often called upon to endorse efforts that support its mission.  The members of 100 Black Men of Atlanta are proud of the accomplishments of the organization and the achievements of its students. They look forward to affecting positive change for Atlanta’s challenged communities and its youth for years to come.
