Are you at least 21 years old and have the passion to empower, mentor or coach a young person?

Project Ready: Mentor is one of the National Urban League's signature programs. Mentees are 11- through 18-year-old students enrolled in our Youth Education and Development Division programs.

The National Urban League designed Project Ready: Mentor to expose youth to diverse educational, developmental and career opportunities with increasing degrees of complexity, responsibility, and skill acquisition.

Project Ready: Mentor helps local communities across the country develop the internal resources needed to support youth by expanding the supply of well-trained mentors, creating and sustaining meaningful and supportive relationships between caring adults and youth, and directing those relationships toward reducing behaviors that undermine youth well-being and increase educational and employment success.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Urban League of Rochester, NY is to enable African-Americans, Latinos, the poor and other disadvantaged to secure economic self-reliance, parity and power and civil rights.

Description

The Urban League of Rochester was founded in 1965 in the wake of racial unrest and riots that crippled the Rochester community. The formation of the agency, which is an affiliate of the National Urban League, was intended to address the material needs of poor and minority citizens in areas such as housing, employment, education, health and economic parity.

Today, the Urban League of Rochester offers over 30 programs in the areas of youth services, services for the developmentally disabled, economic development, employment services, family and children services, education, homeownership and entrepreneurial assistance. In 2013, the League served over 4,000 individuals.
