At our core, the ULGC is focused on addressing racial and economic inequities that affect our entire community to ensure that Chattanooga can be a place where all persons can thrive regardless of race or socioeconomic status.
Annually, The Urban League serves between 11,000 – 15,000 diverse residents primarily from high poverty urban neighborhoods where youth, young adults, and families struggle with economic hardships, asset building, and low educational attainment.
In addition, we not only have a focus on improving outcomes for individuals facing upward mobility and poverty issues, but also programs to address diverse leadership and equitable opportunities, initiatives for young professionals of color, high potential minority leaders and women. We help facilitate social capital, build leadership capacity and access to opportunities for achieving greater upward economic mobility and professional growth through our ULGC programs.
