The 100 Black Men of Louisville offers financial assistance to students in their high school mentoring program to assist them in entering college. The organization’s collegiate 100 mentoring program helps students continue their pursuit of academic excellence at University of Louisville, Kentucky State University, and University of Kentucky. In order to be eligible for selection, youths must excel in school, stay off drugs and act as Big Brothers and Big Sisters and peer leaders at their respective schools. Some of the students are chosen to participate in national academic competitions and their travel expenses are paid. The 100 chapter has opened its doors to African American females at the university level.
