Welcome to the Urban League of Greater Richmond Young Professionals!
The Urban League of Greater Richmond Young Professionals (ULGR-YP) organization was designed to provide young professionals (ages 21-40) in the Greater Richmond area, with a forum that fosters networking, professional development, community service, social awareness, equal access to opportunities and self-reliance.
This new developing force is composed of key local talent and young professionals committed to supporting and promoting the mission of the Urban League of Greater Richmond through social and civic engagement. The ULGR-YP Chapter is one of 42 chapters of the National Urban League Young Professional (NULYP), which serves as the umbrella organization under the National Urban League to support the League’s three pronged agenda: financial literacy, real world education, and political education.
We earnestly believe in our members and strive to develop programs that encourage individual members’ personal, professional, and civic growth. We work to strengthen our members by encouraging them to achieve balance in their lives even as they work to strengthen their communities. We pride ourselves in having a diversity of professional backgrounds and we aim to share our experiences, learn from each other, and unite our community through active involvement.
