NULYP's Sixth Annual Day of Service To Empower Youth With Financial Management Skills on May 8th

National Urban League Young Professionals’ Sixth Annual Day of Service To Empower Youth With Financial Management Skills on May 8th

New York, N.Y. – May 7, 2009 - Thousands of young African-American professionals across the country will volunteer their voices, time and resources to educate youth aged 12 to 18 years-old on the benefits of sound financial management during the National Urban League Young Professionals’ (NULYP) sixth annual National Day of Service.

On May 8, 2009 over 45 NULYP chapters are expected to participate in this nationwide effort to preach the gospel of fiscal responsibility. Armed with financial education curriculums developed by the Financial Literacy Foundation, volunteers will be charged with illuminating the future rewards of understanding money and credit at an early age.

“The NULYP National Day of Service plays a critical role in securing a solid economic future for all Americans,” said Marc H. Morial, president and CEO of the National Urban League. “Young African-American professionals will share their experiences with teenagers and instill in youth the significant role that sound money management plays in creating future prosperity. Greater financial education is key to helping African-Americans bridge the economic divide separating us from mainstream America. The earlier African-Americans learn how to get the best return on their hard-earned money the brighter our future will be.”

This initiative, which is expected to reach approximately 5,000 young people, supports financial empowerment - a core component of the National Urban League’s and NULYP’s mission.

"Our movement is not about public accommodations,” said Cassye D. Cook, president of the NULYP. “It is about access to opportunity and being prepared when that opportunity presents itself. That is what our National Day of Service is about -- preparing our most vulnerable for the opportunities their futures are sure to bring. We are excited to educate youth on finances that will only strengthen our economic future."

In addition to numerous community activities, financial education literature will be distributed to local media and community service organizations to increase public awareness.
With 61 chapters nationwide, the NULYP is an Urban League volunteer auxiliary group composed of young professionals ranging from 21 to 40 years-old that advances the league’s agenda through corporate, social and community activism nationwide.
