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.‎
