The purpose of the BULYP is to support the objectives of the Birmingham Urban League, which ‎are to promote civic participation, financial literacy, and real-world education.

The Birmingham Urban League exists to address the disparities that face all racial and ethnic ‎groups in the areas of education, economics, health, civic engagement and civil rights. We do ‎this by promoting civic participation, financial literacy, and real-world education. ‎

The mission of the BULYP is to empower young professionals dedicated to developing and ‎implementing programs and services that will assist the Birmingham Urban League in their pursuit ‎of social and economic equality.
