The 100 Black Men of Myrtle Beach, Inc. was founded in 2008 by men committed to making a meaningful difference in the community they serve.  The Chapter’s membership is comprised of a diverse group of  men that  includes business owners, educators, engineers, doctors, lawyers, community leaders, and public servants who are deeply connected to the communities where they live and work.  Members represent three  metropolitan areas: Myrtle Beach, Conway, and Georgetown, SC. The intellectual diversity present in the chapter’s membership combined with social partnerships from  three geographic locations  has created a solid framework for an extensive youth mentoring network.  With a disciplined approach to executing partnership strategies, the 100 Black Men of Myrtle Beach  has maintained a focus on making a measurable impact in the black community.  A large part of the chapter’s success rests in its ability to ally with kindred organizations, and where appropriate, with organizations in which our membership has associations. The chapter seeks alliances that are naturally centered around our “Four for The Future” programming.  The chapter leads efforts that create dialogue, leverage resources, and promote action through collaborative organizational partnerships. Our goal is to continually be  a socially conscious association of concerned black men, determined to affect positive change  for black families in the Greater Myrtle Beach Area.

 

Since its inception, the 100 Black Men of Myrtle Beach, Inc. has remained visible in the community through its mentoring program, involvement in community health and economic forums, initiatives to provide school supplies for children, and participation in annual educator recognition programs. The chapter is one of several community based organizations providing sponsorship for The Covey Leadership Initiative in the Myrtle Beach School System, partners with The South Carolina Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy, and  supports the Myrtle Beach Careteam in its efforts to provide HIV awareness education in the community. The chapter is a not for profit 501(C)3 corporation and sponsors  an annual fall gala and summer golf tournament as  means to obtain funding for ongoing programs.
