What We Do

MUL Programs

The Memphis Urban League provides programs and initiatives in the following areas:

Workforce & Economic Development

The Memphis Urban League's Department of Workforce & Economic Development was designed to address the employment needs of two constituencies--skilled workers who seek assistance in securing job opportunities and employers who need qualified applicants to fill job vacancies within the Memphis metropolitan statistical area. Through a variety of innovative projects and events, such as job fairs, specialized recruitment sessions, and networking opportunities, the Department of Employment and Training assists individuals in creating meaningful professional contacts that enhance their marketability and ultimately assist them in securing employment while simultaneously serving as an invaluable recruitment source to local companies.

Many barriers exist that prevent these students from excelling in their studies and pursuing the American dream of attaining higher education, and scoring the perfect career. Read more...
