ILAACP Youth In Prevention grant/Avatar

100BMC Mentees Eric Austin and Floyd Parker joined with Mentors Kenol and Kevin at the Little Black Pearl to receive a mini-grant awarded by the Illinois African American Coalition for Prevention (ILAACP) in partnership with DHS: Division of Community Health & Prevention. Malik Nevels and Breon Baker hosted the event where the 100BMC and 11 other winning grassroots organizations were honored. This spring our mentees will be hosting a discussion on media’s pressure upon changes in male images, professional sports, and steroids abuse at the “For Men only health Fair” at Provident Hospital.

For their unselfish sacrifice of missing a day of school, the mentees were treated to the movie Avatar at the Navy Pier 3D IMAX.
