Young Professionals

Our Mission: To engage Young Professionals in the Central Florida Urban League's (CFUL) movement towards the achievement of social and economic equality

About Us:

The Central Florida Urban League Young Professionals (CFULYP) is a network of young professionals across Central Florida who provide leadership development, economic empowerment and community volunteer opportunities for other young professionals. Whether you are new to Central Florida, and looking to connect with new people, or you are here and ready to impact the Central Florida community with fellow young professionals, CFULYP members are ready to meet and create change with you!

Our vision is to be the premier professional organization in Central Florida, whose focus is volunteering in the local community and aligning with service associations. The sustained focus includes engaging and empowering young professionals through signature programs, networking events, and workshops.

As a National Urban League Young Professionals chapter, we are training, developing, and educating young professionals to take leadership roles within the Urban League, the civil rights movement, and society-at-large. Members of Young Professionals are defining, developing, implementing, and leading the next generation civil rights agenda.

Our Committees

Membership: Our membership committee is responsible for recruiting and retaining members, ensuring that new and existing members are connected to a committee and engaged in the organization.

Personal & Professional Development: Our Personal & Professional Development committee is responsible for creating programming that provides opportunities for professional development and personal growth, enhancing the professional skills, knowledge, and expertise of the membership and community.

Community Engagement: From voter registration and Census education to mentoring and supporting our youth, our Community Engagement Team is responsible for creating programming that ensures members are civically engaged and that we are impacting the Central Florida community.

How to get involved:

Each month, the CFULYP hosts a General Body Meeting. This meeting takes place on the first Tuesday of each month at 6:30 PM and is themed with a different topic each month. From financial literacy, to mental health, to personal development, we explore a range of topics that help our members to develop personally and professionally.

We also offer monthly social and networking events, volunteer engagements, and professional development opportunities. The best way to stay up to date is to follow us on social media.

CFULYP members have access to our Members only group chat, where members discuss daily topics, share events and happenings in Central Florida, are able to promote their own businesses, as well as share/receive recommendations. This group is also the first to know about CFULYP upcoming events and initiatives. Members also receive notice of perks like free tickets and special invites.
