The Urban League of Greater Atlanta “Empowers Communities and Changes Lives”. We meet people where they are and support them to embark on a pathway to success through access to education and job skills training, workforce opportunities, youth development, homeownership, adult reentry, entrepreneurship and civic engagement. Here you are able to “meet” some of our partners and the real people – youth, adults and families that we serve every day and hear how our collaborative work is impacting their lives.
