Urban-League_v2The Urban League of the Upstate has been working to empower and transform African-American communities since our founding in 1970. Fundamental to our success has been volunteer involvement. Volunteers are the heart and soul of the Urban League movement, expanding our reach into our nation’s rural, urban and suburban communities.

Our volunteers have helped to increase fundraising efforts, worked as adult mentors to youth, participated in community mobilization projects and supported the staff and programs of our more than 100 local Urban League Affiliates. We continue to provide volunteer opportunities for those who are eager to get involved and become a part of the service tradition that has defined our community and our movement.



I am EMPOWERED calls for us all to pledge our time, talent and treasure to partner for a better Upstate.
