17th Annual Gala

Leadership Academy Summer Enrichment Program

100 Blackmen of Greater Mobile - Boat Show

Leadership Academy Boat Building Program

Boat Building Program

The summer enrichment program of the Leadership Academy emphasized Boat Building and mentoring. The 100 Black Men of Greater Mobile partnered with the Mobile Bay Institute to assist students from various middle schools in learning how to build a boat as a project based learning activity.  This project gave relevance to mathematics that students use in everyday life.  During this activity the participants learned about teamwork, team building, and gave them a goal to reach in building a boat. At the completion of the program, students will participate in a boat launching ceremony.

When boat building is about something more -- in this case, middle school math

For their first-ever boat trip, Destinee Rogers and Angel Scott, both 13, took a ride Friday on a wooden skiff that they and their classmates helped to build. The two Scarborough Middle School students declared their short rowboat ride, powered by a volunteer at a lake at Langan Park, "scary" but "exciting." They and other members of the school's Math Club studied geometry and fractions this year by building two boats in a mentoring project sponsored by the 100 Black Men of Mobile, the school system and the Wooden Boat Ministry.Click Here To Continue Reading More

The 100 Black Men of America

The 100 Black Men of America dates back to 1963 when a group of men business and industry and other professions met in New York City to explore a vision built upon the foundation of making a lasting difference in the lives of African-American youth. The members all had a passion to channel their collective resources into areas that would improve the lives of young people.
