This upcoming school year is very important to the students and The 100 has made donations and will volunteer to help students be prepared. The Colony Park Neighborhood Association and Black Women in Business are hosting Back to School events to provide backpacks and supplies to children in East Austin in the month of August. Please support by making a donation or volunteering!
Jayden Bright and Jaylen Lee represented the 100 Austin Chapter as one of the top teams of the Wells Fargo/SIFMA Stock Market competition. They gave a stock presentation on the stocks they chose during the 10-week competition virtually at the 100 Black Men of America National Conference. Jayden and Jaylen finished 2nd overall nationally and they represented themselves and their families well. Job Well Done!
The 100 Black Men of Austin, Inc. partnered with Texas Empowerment Academy 2 years ago and made a commitment to make change in the Austin Community. This school has been in existence over 20 plus years and we’re fortunate to be a part of its first graduating class. As part of our support of Texas Empowerment Academy, we’ve provided all 16 students with a scholarship as 100% of the class is attending college this Fall. We’re proud of the students and hope they will have a fruitful and success college experience.
