Who we are

The Greater Phoenix Urban League is one of the 94 affiliates of the National Urban League. While there is still much to be done, the GPUL works on behalf of those in need and has literally touched thousands of lives in the City of Phoenix and surrounding areas.


Our Executive Leadership

The Board of Directors is responsible for the general oversight, direction, and management of the Greater Phoenix Urban League organization.

Our Programs

Our mission is to equip the disadvantaged with tools to achieve economic and social equality through programs in child development, education, job readiness and housing.

The GPUL partnered with the City of Phoenix and the State of Arizona to implement the Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP). Through strategic partnership and community outreach, the GPUL strives to help local families secure housing.

We understand the goal of setting students up for success with the need for quality childhood and youth education programs. To help shape the young leaders of tomorrow, the GPUL provides Head Start and College Prep programs to help students around the valley.

The GPUL Employment Program objectives include developing and maintaining a network of diverse employers, identifying & preparing candidates for an employment search and placing candidates in sustainable positions.

Founded in 2005, the mission of the GPUL Young Professionals is to serve as a vehicle for those aged 21-40 to become active in the greater Phoenix community and to provide opportunities for development, engagement, and empowerment.
