A Message From our President 

sean-washington-225x300It is a pleasure to welcome you to the Website of the UrbanLeague of Hampton Roads Young Professionals (ULHRYP). ULHRYP is an organization where you will find young professionals engaging in the Urban League Movement toward social and economic empowerment. Throughout this Web site, you will discover the many professional development, community engagement and youth empowerment programs we offer young professionals here in Hampton Roads, Virginia.

Since 2005, ULHRYP has been serving the Hampton Roads Community and our affiliate, the Urban League of Hampton Roads, Inc., through a variety of solid programs built to empower communities and change lives. As an organization we focus on the National Urban League I Am Empowered Goals.

ULHRYP also serves as a training ground for the next generation of leaders. Through our monthly General Body Meetings, we offer a Professional Speaker Series where invited guests join us to discuss issues pertinent to the professional and personal development of our members. Lastly, in ULHRYP we work hard but also take time to enjoy ourselves by offering social, cultural and networking opportunities for our members, friends and the community.

I invite you to explore our Web site and learn more about the many ways ULHRYP is working to make Hampton Roads a better place for all its citizens. Once you have discovered more, consider joining us through membership, as a volunteer or through a tax-deductible financial contribution.

On behalf of the entire ULHRYP family, thank you for visiting our website.

Yours in the Movement,

Sean Washington
