ULHR mission is to empower communities and change lives by offering many programs in such areas as education, employment, health, and housing in which many are offered free of charge.
ULHRYP is the avenue for young professionals to enhance their leadership skills through a series of programs offered including professional development speaker series dedicated to the professional growth of our members. We offer social and cultural events to further strengthen networking skills and also various community events and projects which gives our members the opportunity to give back. Our monthly General Body Meetings give our members and guest a chance to inquire in person more about the organization and to engage with our board members about important issues pertinent to personal and professional growth.
