OUR PRESIDENT'S WELCOME
Welcome to the Denver Metro Urban League Young Professional's (DULYP) page!
We are so excited to connect with you and share the great things going on in our beloved city and our organization. Denver, most commonly referred to as the Mile High city because of our city's elevation which is 5,280 feet above sea level, is the eastern most city of the National Urban League Young Professional's (NULYP's) Western Region.
Denver is one of the fastest growing cities in the country. Our city is place to climb to new heights in your career, experience a life of adventure, raise a family, and most of all make a difference in lives of others. Home to the majestic Rocky Mountains, Colorado is a state filled with adventure, fitness, and moments for the soul.
DULYP is an organization that believes in community, service, economic empowerment, and uplifting the next generation. Under the leadership of former President Eddie Koen, DULYP was able to win the 2013 National Day of Service award from the National Urban League. This set the tone for what our organization means to our community. We embody a culture and spirit of service, "paying it forward," and partnership is a deeply rooted part of our core as an organization. Please come to our meetings that occur every 3rd Tuesday of the month. At our meetings you can expect to meet some dynamic, friendly, and driven young professionals. The purpose of the auxiliary is to train, develop, and educate young professionals on taking leadership roles within the Urban League and within the broader community-at large.
As the standing President, my purpose is to assist in each member's discovery of their purpose; to be a catalyst in their lives, a spark, a voice of reason or perspective, a source of encouragement, and most of all to serve as a bridge to help guide toward their ultimate purpose. We have work to do, but I am confident that it will be done. I look forward to serving you all. Please be sure to like our fan page on Facebook to stay abreast of our events and activities. The condition of our communities is a reflection far more of the ones who LEFT rather than the blame of those who REMAIN... We ARE our community. Thank you for coming to our site and hopefully we encouraged you to GET EMPOWERED because WE’VE GOT NOW.
