On September 8, 2018 our CEO Reverend Howard Beckham was honored by 10 Black Men of Atlanta, Inc. The 100 Honors Gala highlighted the work of 100 Black Men of Atlanta, Inc. and the success of the students they support. In addition to celebrating their own work, the organization presented awards to distinguished members of the Atlanta community for their contributions to bettering Atlanta. Reverend Beckham was honored with the Nathaniel R. Goldston, III Trailblazer Award for his work on the Westside with his nonprofit, Integrity Transformations Community Development Corporation. The nonprofit, which was founded in 1995, seeks to help residents of the Westside to gain employment by providing training and job opportunities.
100 Black Men of Atlanta, Inc. was founded in 1986 and is one of the strongest African American volunteer organizations in Atlanta. The organization focuses on education, enrichment, and empowerment through mentorship and community service. Their particular focus is on youth development with their program Project Success. The 100 Honors Gala was in part a fundraiser for Project Success to help them continue their important work in the community.
