Chairman’s Message

William D. Holiber, New York Urban League

Dear Friend,


Welcome to the New York Urban League.  I have the distinct pleasure of serving as Chairman of the Board of Directors of the New York Urban League.  In this capacity, I work with the organizations most dedicated volunteers – our board – to achieve the Urban  League’s mission. Last year the Urban Leagues chief volunteers completed a strategic planning process where we identified five key areas that position NYUL for leadership in the 21st century.


Our strategic priorities are as follows:
1. Sustainability
2. Program, Education and Employment
3. Communications, branding, and visibility
4. Advocacy
5. Accountability


We know that our goals are ambitious, so we will need your support to bring them to fruition.  Partnerships and people are key to our success.  In this newly designed website you will read the stories of youth and adults whose lives have been positively impacted  by the New York Urban League.  The website you are reading today is a result of one of our partnerships with the talented design team at Deutsch Inc.


We hope this is the beginning of your engagement with the New York Urban League.  It is our goal that you join us as a concerned and involved New Yorker, who too will have a story to tell.
