“Everybody can be great…because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”

The Urban League of Greater Hartford Young Professionals (YP), an auxiliary of the Urban League of Greater Hartford, is re-positioning for impact and we need your support.
Our organization is focused on the needs of our community and our mission to help reduce the number of children and families affected by educational, occupational and economic disparities. We deliver on our mission by supporting our affiliate and delivering programming such as our “First Day, the Right Way!’ back to school backpack giveaway and community event. This year, we raised and distributed 400 backpacks filled with school supplies. We were also able to provide these families and children, approximately 500 in attendance, with hot dogs, burgers, entertainment and empowerment information from community partners on the campus of the Urban League of Greater Hartford.
With newly designed programming such as a SAT boot camp and youth scholarships, YP is positioned to successfully impact the Greater Hartford community. With a growing membership base, we are attracting, engaging and retaining young, diverse leaders within the region, with a focus on improving the community in which they live and work.
With your support and partnership, we hope to reach our goal to increase our backpack giveaway by 50% and deliver SAT Prep to 100 students within the Hartford Public School System by February, 2016.
Will you consider becoming a sponsor and community partner? Your generosity – regardless of size – can help us make an impact as we continue Empowering Communities and Changing Lives.
Please indicate your donation is for YP within the Notes section of the Donor Page.
Thank you in advance for your support!
