The Urban League of the Upstate works to provide economic empowerment, educational opportunities and the guarantee of civil rights for the underserved in America. We started our Centennial Celebration in 2010 with a bold, nationwide call to action. We are apart of the I AM EMPOWERED, an initiative focusing on four aspirational goals for empowering communities to achieve in education, employment, housing, and healthcare, the cornerstones of our approach.
The Empowerment Goals
Every American child is ready for college, work and life.
Employment & Workforce Development
Every American has access to jobs with a living wage and good benefits.
Every American lives in safe, decent, affordable and energy efficient housing on fair terms.
Every American has access to quality and affordable health care solutions.
