About Us

Our History

100 Black Men of Sacramento (BMoS) is a non-profit, 501(c) 3 organization (Federal Employee Identification Number 94-1698065) that formed in 1986 as an affiliate chapter of the 100 Black Men of America (100 BMOA).  100 BMOS utilizes its diverse talents to create an environment that enables mentees to be motivated to achieve and be empowered to become self-sufficient stakeholders in the economic and social fabric of the community they reside. 100 BMOS is committed to the intellectual development of youth and the economic empowerment of the Sacramento community based on the following precepts: respect for family, spirituality, justice, and integrity.

100 BMOS has created programs that have empowered thousands of mentees to become self-sufficient and responsible stakeholders in the economic and social dynamics of their communities. 100 BMOS programs are focused in the areas of mentoring, education, economic empowerment, and health and wellness. Through a systematic process of group mentoring, workshops, and conferences, 100 BMOS improves the quality of life and enhances the educational achievement of Sacramento’s underserved.





We provide mentoring, tutoring, cultural enrichment, and college scholarships for Black youth in the Sacramento area. 


Our programs focus on Mentoring & Education, Health & Wellness, and Economic Empowerment.  We help promote childhood literacy through our weekly Reading and Writing initiatives.

President’s Message

Welcome to the 100 Black Men of Sacramento Website.  

My sincere passion drives me to work together with our local communities, parents, school officials, and youth, and members to ensure the 100 are working at 100% in providing mentoring, health and wellness, economic empowerment, and education platforms.  We are guided by the vision and mission statements as shared with the 100 Black Men of America.  Our Strategic Plan ensures we stay focused on our customers, internal processes, the 100’s Learning and Growth, and Financial Objectives.  

Over the past year we have been mentoring at Natomas Middle School using our National Based Curriculum ‘Mentoring the 100 Way’, which has 17 different lesson plans that provide positive insight and direction for program participants.  These Saturday Mentoring Academies also covered STEM in computer coding and robotics.  Due to COVID-19, we made the adjustment to Zoom and continued to the end of the school year.  


This year we have returned to Natomas Middle School and are now mentoring at Inderkum High School with a focus on Hands on Banking and Entrepreneurship.

We seek to bring the Collegiate 100 and Emerging 100 programs to the Sacramento area in preparing college students for leadership, career, and life experiences.

We welcome your support, sponsorship and membership.  We have various committees where you can share your talents and assist us in working towards our mission.  Please use the contact information to begin the onboarding process.

Always Mentoring and Available,

Richard Cornelius
