Greater Phoenix Urban League Young Professionals

Welcome to the Valley, where the sun shines bright and the Greater Phoenix Urban League movement is going strong. Greater Phoenix Urban League Young Professionals (GPHXULYP) was founded in 2005 to provide opportunities for professional development, civic engagement and community empowerment among professionals ages 21 to 40.

Join a National Movement

Our organization is the local chapter of National Urban League Young Professionals (NULYP), a National Urban League volunteer auxiliary founded in 1999 to enable young go-getters to empower their communities and change lives. Our mission is to support the Urban League movement through volunteerism, philanthropy and leadership development.

NULYP started off with people just like you – people looking for an opportunity to make a difference. Now is your time! There has never been a more urgent need for people with your talent, drive and compassion across the Valley of the Sun. Learn more about NULYP and our local YP chapter. Sign up to become a member.
