I AM EMPOWERED
The Birmingham Urban League Young Professionals (BULYP) is a Birmingham Urban League volunteer auxiliary that targets young professionals ages 21-40 to empower their communities and change lives through the Urban League Movement.
The BULYP is one of more than 36+ chapters of the National Urban League Young Professionals that support the National Urban League’s strategy to employ a five-point approach to provide economic empowerment, educational opportunities and the guarantee of civil rights:
Education and Youth Empowerment ensures the education of all children by providing access to early childhood literacy, after-care programs and college scholarships.
Economic Empowerment invests in the financial literacy and employability of adults through job training, homeownership and entrepreneurship.
Health and Quality of Life Empowerment promotes community wellness through a focus on prevention, including fitness, healthy eating and access to affordable healthcare.
Civic Engagement and Leadership Empowerment encourages all people to take an active role to improve quality of life through participation in community service projects and public policy initiatives.
Civil Rights and Racial Justice Empowerment guarantees equal participation in all facets of American society through proactive public policies and community-based programs.
