The Urban League of Portland Young Professionals (ULPDXYP) is a volunteer auxiliary of the Urban League of Portland that encourages young professionals ages 21-40 to empower their communities and change lives through the Urban League Movement. We host monthly professional and personal development programming for our members and connect them to the Urban League’s work in advocacy, civic engagement and workforce development. Our goal is to build a pipeline of young leaders who consider Portland and the Urban League as key contributors to their personal development and professional success.
