Project Success


Project Success is a post-secondary preparation and tuition assistance program that has been nationally recognized as a premier youth development initiative. Project Success started in 1987 and is dedicated to mentoring inner city youth living in at-risk environments, encouraging their academic success, and helping them develop into educated, contributing members of our community.

100 Black Men of Atlanta, Inc.’s Project Success program is open to U.S. students enrolled in the 3rd grade at Atlanta Public Schools located in the metro Atlanta area. In addition to meeting all admittance criteria, students must commit to full participation in the academic, social, cultural and recreational events associated with the program. The Parent or Guardian must also demonstrate strong and consistent involvement in the program.

To become a Project Success 100 Scholar, students must meet the above criteria and be in the 8th grade at one of the program’s participating middle schools, with plans to attend one of the program’s participating high schools. 100 Scholars must have a GPA of 3.0 or have a 2.5 GPA along with a 90th percentile standardized test score. Currently the Project Success program is at capacity and is not accepting applications.
