100 Black Men of America and University of Phoenix have announced a collaboration that will enhance the delivery of mentoring services for members of traditionally underserved communities across the nation. Over the last 12 months, the University of Phoenix has donated 15 full-tuition scholarships and more than $200,000 to 100 Black Men of America to help build local chapter infrastructure throughout the nation and to support the organization’s mentoring initiatives.
“The 100 Black Men of America and our 116-chapter network fully understand the transformational impact that access to quality education can have,” said Albert E. Dotson, Jr., Chairman of the Board, 100 Black Men of America, Inc. “We also recognize that many people require the educational flexibility that University of Phoenix model provides. We appreciate the investment that University of Phoenix is making in our mentoring programs and in the individuals we serve through the scholarship support.”
A cornerstone of the collaboration is University of Phoenix’s investment in the 100 Black Men of America’s strategic plan, Mentoring The 100 Way Across A Lifetime®. Through this investment, thousands of communities, youth, adults, families, and stakeholders will benefit from direct services 100 Black Men of America provides in Mentoring, Education, Health and Wellness, and Economic Empowerment.
