The Dayton Urban League Young Professionals is looking to train the next generation of leaders.
The Dayton Urban League auxillary group, founded in 2001, will host a networking event for young professionals on December 16 at Therapy Cafe at 5:30 p.m. Wrap up the year and prepare for 2010 by coming out to “meet and greet” with community leaders and other professionals in the Dayton area. The DULYP will unveil its “I am empowered to…” campaign as well as outline plans for the upcoming year.
The Dayton Urban League Young Professionals employs a five-point agenda:
- Education and Youth Empowerment: Ensuring that all of our children are well educated and prepared for economic self-reliance in the 21st century. DULYP works with DUL’s youth programs and Parity to provide role models and mentors for youth in the community.
- Economic Empowerment: Empowering all people in attaining economic self-sufficiency through job training, good jobs, homeownership, entrepreneurship and wealth accumulation.
- Health and Quality of Life Empowerment: Working to build healthy and safe communities to eliminate health disparities through prevention, healthy eating, fitness, as well as ensuring complete access to affordable healthcare for all people.
- Civic Engagement and Leadership Empowerment: Empowering all people to take an active role in determining the direction, quality of life, public policy and leadership in their communities by full participation as citizens and voters, as well as through active community service and leadership development.
Civil Rights and Racial Justice Empowerment: Promoting and ensuring our civil rights by actively working to eradicate all barriers to equal participation in all aspects of American society, whether political, economic, social, educational or cultural.
