Mentoring

We will intensify our efforts to provide the transformational youth Virtual Mentee curriculum “Mentoring The 100 Way Across A Lifetime” involving exposure to tools and skills that mentees can use to be productive in school and in their communities.

Connectivity

Given the abrupt transition to remote learning and telemedicine, the need for universal connectivity is no longer an option but an obligation. The 100 BMM strive to ensure that all, irrespective of income, have electronic connectivity.

Factual Communication

Given that fear and anxiety abound and often overwhelming for all, especially our children, the 100 BMM will continue to stay connected with our Community through the provision of accurate and helpful Communication.

Virtual Learning 

Our Educational Coaches provide both blended and online learning opportunities to expand student access to educational resources and thus enhance the virtual teacher-student relationship to create stronger interpersonal connections.

Advocacy

Once again, those most in need are now more in need. The 100 BMM will amplify our labors to publicly support and recommend policy that supports those of our Community who are most in need, the abandoned.

In concert with the 100 Black Men of America’s Health & Wellness platform, the 100 Black Men of Madison seeks to provide helpful background information on the current prevalence of COVID-19 (Coronavirus).

Time and again, we are reminded in our service that the kids who struggle in school don't have trouble learning as much as they have trouble living. Right now, our current situation takes that reality to a whole new level.

Financial & Economic Assistance

The CARES Act

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act was passed by Congress on March 27th, 2020 to provide economic assistance for American workers, families, and small businesses. The CARES Act involves economic impact payments (stimulus checks) and the Paycheck Protection Program (for small businesses). Please ensure the IRS has your correct and up-to-date information to receive your economic impact payment effectively.

Wisconsin Pandemic Unemployment Assistance

If you're out of work through no fault of your own, and you've worked for a covered employer (an employer who pays Unemployment Insurance tax) in the last 18 months, you'll need to apply for regular UI benefits before you can begin filing a weekly claim.

Local Information is Vital

When possible, please continue to keep yourselves informed with appropriate sources of LOCAL news and updates. Requirements for staying at home and interacting socially are constantly changing by state; what is enforced in one is not necessarily enforced in another. That being said, please protect your mental health and be sensitive to the amount of information you and your family can take in at a time.
