President’s Message

A Letter From The President

Dear Members and Visitors,

Founded in 1972, the Urban League of Long Island is the region’s oldest community-based organization dedicated to leveling the playing field and improving opportunities for African-Americans and other underrepresented groups.

Youth Education / Training, Workforce Development, and Economic Empowerment have always been central to the League’s mission and work. A focal point of the League’s community engagement has been to constructively engage youth and children around education, their first job, and college readiness.

I was called to service at the Urban League of Long Island in 1992 and continue to be excited about developing strategic partnerships that meet our mission and fulfill our tradition of focusing on job training, job creation, advocacy, and youth development and have broadened our services to reach all of those at risk in these challenging economic times. I invite you to learn more about our affiliate, our work and how we are empowering communities and changing lives. Please take some time to enjoy the website, and I hope you will join the movement!

Yours Truly,

Theresa Sanders
President, Urban League of Long Island Inc.
