About

The mission of The Houston Area Urban League Young Professionals (HAULYP) is to build a positive synergy that will advance activism in the community among young professionals under the age of 40. The Young Professionals are committed to supporting the objectives of the Urban League as it endeavors to improve the quality of life for people of color through economic and political awareness, community development and real world education.

As an auxiliary of the Houston Area Urban League, we engage young men and women in the movement towards the achievement of professional development, social and economic equality, and community service. Through the hosting of public forums, presentations from guest speakers from Houston’s professional arena, developmental seminars and outreach efforts benefiting adults and youth, HAULYP seeks to cultivate its membership by helping them grow participants professionally as well as civically.
