What they see is what they will be – that’s the motto of 100 Black Men of Coastal North Carolina.

The Core Mentor Group is playing an increasingly important role in supporting young people in New Hanover, Pender and Brunswick County by providing confidants, counselors and, in many cases, friends. Key to their success, these models resemble those who admire them.
