Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Our Strategy: The League implements its mission through its three-pronged strategy: 1) Ensuring that our children are well educated and equipped for economic self-reliance in the 21st century; 2) Helping adults attain economic self-sufficiency through good jobs, homeownership, entreprenuership and wealth accumulation; and 3) Ensuring our civil rights by eradicating all barriers to equal participation in the economic and social mainstream. Some examples of this include; * The Economic Self-Sufficiency & Technology department that recently built 48 state-of-the-art Digital Campuses in 44 Urban League affiliates. A Digital Campus is a network computer lab which harnesses the power of technology to support child development, after-school and adult training programs at Urban League affiliates. * The Black Executive Exchange Program (BEEP) which meets the needs, interests and desires of Historically Black Colleges by providing mentors, and role models to over fifty college campuses. Over 400 mid and upper management executives travel to school campuses equipped and prepared to extend a hand in workforce development. * The Seniors in Community Service Program enrolls older adults-whose incomes are at or below 125% of poverty level-and places them in subsidized training positions in public and private nonprofit community-service agency. * The Workforce Investment Demonstration Project has provided technical assistance and training to over 5,000 affiliate staff and employment/training service providers in support of planned or existing employment and training services.
