The Urban League of Westchester is a historic civil rights organization dedicated to economic empowerment in order to elevate the standard of living in historically underserved urban communities.
Founded in 1918, the Urban League of Westchester spearheads its efforts through the development of various programs to implement innovative services and sustain advocacy.
Today, the Urban League of Westchester proudly serves 48 municipalities, including cities, towns and villages, providing direct services to improve the lives of underprivileged community members who are faced with economic challenges and barriers.
The mission of the Urban League of Westchester County, Inc. is to assist African Americans, other minorities and disadvantaged individuals to achieve social and economic self-sufficiency.
Our three pronged strategy for doing this is: ensuring the academic preparation and social development of children and young adults so they are equipped for self-reliance and citizenship; fostering economic self-sufficiency through gainful employment and entrepreneurship; and promoting diversity and inclusion so that opportunities are open to all people.
