YP Empowered

Established in 2005, the Greater Phoenix Urban League Young Professionals (GPHXULYP) mission is to serve as a vehicle for individuals ages 21-40 to become active in this community. We plan and participate in a variety of educational, fundraising and networking events. In addition, we work to raise funds for Greater Phoenix Urban League programs. These efforts assist in making the Greater Phoenix area a more equitable place for all citizens. 

YP represents the future of the Valley: diverse, highly educated and eager for opportunities to realize the American dream. Together, we're forging connections that will strengthen the future for all underrepresented individuals and families.


We are actively seeking corporate and community partners to help us broaden our impact. Recent partnerships include the Phoenix Suns organization, National Association of Black Accountants, Black Alliance for Just Immigration, and the Black and Brown Coalition of Arizona. Here is a snapshot of our group demographics to help you better understand the opportunity, interest and insight that our group represents:
