The Jacksonville Urban League has been working to empower and transform African-American communities since our founding in 1947. Fundamental to our success has been volunteer involvement. Volunteers are the heart and soul of the Urban League movement, expanding our reach into our nation's rural, urban and suburban communities.
Our volunteers have helped to increase fundraising efforts, worked as adult mentors to youth, participated in community mobilization projects and supported staff and programs. We continue to provide volunteer opportunities for those who are eager to get involved and become a part of the service tradition that has defined our community and the urban league movement.
I AM EMPOWERED calls for us all to pledge our time, talent and treasure to partner for a better America.
