Welcome to the Urban League of Union County, Inc. 
 
Serving the Union County Community for 77 years! 
 
  
OUR MISSION

The Urban League of Union County Inc., founded in 1944, is a non-profit community based organization in Elizabeth, New Jersey. We are one of 89 affiliates of the 107 year old National Urban League located in New York City. The mission of the Urban League is to assist African Americans and other minority group members in the achievement of social and economic equality.
 
We employ the tools and methods of social work and we intervene at all points in the social and economic structure where the interest of blacks and other minorities and the poor are at stake. We supply information on the minority population, conduct surveys, training programs, secure jobs, motivate youth, and provide essential services in education, housing, health and welfare.
 
GOVERNANCE
 
The structure of the agency is nonpartisan and biracial in its leadership and staff.  We are governed by a Board of Directors who represents various areas of the community. Board members serve for a specific term from the corporate, educational, religious, legal and public arenas. 
 
We have three auxiliaries: the Urban League of Union County Guild-Elizabeth   the Urban League of Union County Guild-Trenton, and the Urban League of Union County Young Professionals all who support  Urban League programs and initiatives. Together they have a combined membership of over 160 men and women.
