Community Engagement

The Emerging 100 of Atlanta is focused on the engagement, encouragement, and betterment of the students at B.E.S.T. Academy and the members of the Collegiate 100 of Atlanta, but also on the enhancement of the community at large. To make an impact on the metro-Atlanta community, our organization hosts various programs and opportunities year-round.

From creating spaces for young professionals to interact with top executives from Fortune 500 companies, to sharing vital information about career development and financial well-being, to shining a light on the importance of mental and physical health in the minority community, the Emerging 100 provides avenues for young professionals to give back to their community and become informed.


As intimate experiences with top corporate executives in the city, these events are designed to give young professionals an exclusive opportunity to discuss one-on-one experiences and strategies for success. Executives provided a “behind-the-scenes” perspective from the preeminent corporate citizens in the City of Atlanta and host companies are provided with the beneficial opportunity to interact with talented young professionals who can be considered as potential applicants in the formal recruitment process.


An interactive half-day workshop where the Emerging 100 leverages its business relationships to bring together experienced professionals and executives who provide insights to graduates and young professionals on entrepreneurship, networking, and moving up the corporate ladder.


An engaging half-day workshop centered on molding “financially fit” young professionals through the use of breakout sessions and conversations around personal investing, debt management, entrepreneurship, and more.


This collection of events emphasizes the importance of forming quality fitness habits at an early age. Past events have consisted of virtual workout sessions, fitness boot camps, bike tours, cycle sessions, and hiking with fitness professionals.


Comcast Cares Day brings together Comcast employees and their families, friends, and community partners around the world to volunteer and make change happen in local communities. Every year, the Emerging 100 of Atlanta is proud to participate in projects that directly serve and beautify schools and various locations in the Atlanta community.
