The Milwaukee Urban League Young Professionals (MULYP) are excited to celebrate a successful 20 years as a young professional organization on Saturday September 21, 2019 by hosting a Personal and Professional Development Conference focused on the Legacy of Leadership: Impact Driven Philanthropy. Started in 1998 MULYP serves as the oldest young professional organization in the City of Milwaukee. As a volunteer auxiliary organization of the 100 year strong Milwaukee Urban League (MUL), MULYP was designed to assist MUL through volunteerism, program support, and philanthropy while also engaging young professional members aged 21-40 to empower their communities. With 300 members MULYP provides members and the general public with leadership development, networking and community outreach opportunities. “We see our role as young professionals as being central to our communities and vital members of the new economy. Our members are the visible embodiment of our commitment to change and improvement. “said MULYP President Tiffany Henry.
MULYP through the support of the Milwaukee community and generous sponsorship by our Urban League friends created our successful and longstanding Dr. Wesley L. Scott Scholarship Program. Named after our long time and former Milwaukee Urban League President who served from 1959-1981. Our collective fundraising efforts have been able to provide over $30,000 to Milwaukee area high school seniors to assist in their higher education endeavors. We look forward to continuing and increasing this pipeline of success, while also supporting the work of our affiliate the Milwaukee Urban League. We want to be an organization that leads by example.”
