The Los Angeles Urban League Young Professionals (LAULYP) is an auxiliary group of the Los Angeles Urban League, comprised of working professionals between the ages of 21 and 45. Members display a commitment to corporate, social, and community contributions to enhance the African-American business climate in Los Angeles by regularly volunteering in the community.

LAULYP is one of 56 chapters of the National Urban League Young Professional movement that supports the National Urban League’s agenda of Education and Youth Development, Economic Empowerment, Health and Quality of Life Empowerment, Civic Engagement and Leadership Training.

LAUL has been recognized back to back in 2012 and 2013 as the Western Region Chapter of Excellence. LAULYP is always seeking new members to add their individual talents to our team and work alongside us to achieve our goals!

The Los Angeles Urban League Guild is a volunteer group comprised of established community members who donate their time and support. Guild members deliver services that extend public understanding and community awareness, act as tutors and mentors, help to develop the leadership skills of ordinary individuals and engage them in local community issues, as well as fundraising activities and promote goodwill on behalf of the Los Angeles Urban League. Considered the heart and soul of the Urban League movement, “Guilders” contribute thousands of volunteer hours annually and play a pivotal role in connecting the Urban League to communities.

Guilders range in age from 28 to 95 and are active in more than 85 chapters in Urban League communities across the nation. Started in New York City in 1942 by Mrs. Mollie Moon, the National Council of Guilds was organized in 1952. The 85 chapters are organized according to the four Urban League regions – north, south, east and west – and operate under a Regional Director.
