From Caden’s mother - The 100 Black Men of Charlotte - MOY program has been such a wonderful opportunity for my son Caden. The time, effort and giving that this organization provides our young men is incredible. The structure, consistency and learning opportunities are invaluable.

Message from Rob Jones When I first considered joining the group, I knew I was going to have an opportunity to positively impact the mentee I was paired with because of the things I've learned in life along the way.
