Urban League Hampton Roads Young Professionals

This auxiliary organization of the Urban League of Hampton Roads, Inc. has individuals between ages 21 and 40 who live, work and serve in the Hampton Roads area.


The chapter is one of the 36 chapters of the National Urban League Young Professionals, which serves as the umbrella organization under the National Urban League to support the League's 5-point empowerment agenda:

  • Education and Youth Empowerment
  • Economic Empowerment
  • Health and Quality of Life Empowerment
  • Civic Empowerment
  • Civil Rights and Racial Justice Empowerment

Since 1910, the Urban League, by its very design, has focused on answering that one question: "How do we address the needs of the people?" The response to this question is what the Urban League "MOVEMENT" is all about? As Young Professionals, it is our RESPONSIBILITY to answer this same question as it relates to current and future young professionals in Hampton Roads. In doing so, we must remain committed to building and refining young professionals.

The ULHR Young Professionals meeting is held every 3rd Thursday of the month. The meeting are generally held at the Norfolk Police Deparment-3rd Precinct, 901 Asbury Avenue, Norfolk, VA 23513. Meetings begin with networking with current members and guest at 6:30 p.m. followed with our General Session at 7p.m. The meeting is open to anyone interested in learning more about the Young Professionals. We encourage all who are interested in attending to contact our Director of Membership at membership@ulhryp.org.
