The National Urban League Young Professionals (NULYP) is a National Urban League volunteer auxiliary that targets young professionals ages 21-40 to empower their communities and change lives through the Urban League Movement. NULYP’s mission is to support the Urban League Movement through our volunteerism, philanthropy and membership development. NULYP began with people looking for an opportunity to make a difference.
In the 1980s and 1990s, several Urban League affiliates recognized the need to prepare a new generation of young leaders to take the mantle of leadership of the civil rights movement. Young African American men and women in their 20s and 30s were invited to participate in and take an active leadership role in their local Affiliate Urban League programs and activities. The NULYP was unveiled at the 1999 National Urban League Annual Conference in Houston, TX.
The Young Professionals auxiliary was started in Arkansas in 2017 to give young professionals support, access, and a community of camaraderie. We pride ourselves on keeping our membership active in uplifting the community through service, advocacy, and growth. The Central and Northwest regions comprise the Arkansas Urban League Young Professionals.
Arkansas Urban League Young Professionals is an auxiliary of the Urban League of the State of Arkansas Inc.
