About Young Professionals
The New York Urban League Young Professionals (NYULYP) is a unique entity of the New York Urban League designed to serve as an empowerment forum for individuals ages 21-40 who live and work throughout the five boroughs of New York City. This premier civil rights auxiliary group works to promote and support the mission of the New York Urban League by training the next generation of leaders through volunteer opportunities, personal and professional development, and fund development. Founded April 1, 2003, the NYULYP is one of 62 chapters of the National Urban League Young Professionals, which is celebrating its 10th year anniversary. This deeply routed movement serves as a network of young professionals across the country that works to eradicate social and economic inequalities through the local implementation of the National Urban League’s empowerment agenda.
