Empowerment Strategy

Our Strategy

The National Urban League employs a five point approach to provide economic empowerment, educational opportunities and the guarantee of civil rights for African Americans.  

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, home ownership 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 the 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.  

The five point strategy guides our local programming efforts including monthly workshops on  personal and professional development, community service projects and initiatives that promote the movement of the Urban League.
