The African American achievement gap makes the path the college less likely in underserved communities.



Basic jobs in underserved communities don’t ladder up to prosperous careers.



Businesses by and for people in the community aren’t being created as often as needed.



Communities become underserved when the rights of its citizens aren’t upheld and respected.


Our Mission

New York Urban League (NYUL) empowers African Americans and other underserved communities to secure a first-class education, economic self-reliance and equal respect of their civil rights through programs, services and advocacy.
