About Us

Welcome to the
Greater Sacramento Urban League

Our mission since 1968 has been to help enhance education, job development and management skills for people in the Sacramento region. Over the years we have assisted thousands in achieving their social and economic goals. Many would say the Greater Sacramento Urban League is in the business of helping make Sacramento’s workforce more educated and productive.

Our parent organization, The National Urban League was founded in 1910 and is a historic civil rights organization dedicated to the economic empowerment of underserved urban communities. With 95 affiliates serving 300 communities in 35 states and the District of Columbia,  providing direct services that impact and improve the lives of more than 2 million people nationwide.
