Young Professionals

It's giving... Activism & Service

The Austin Area Urban League Young Professionals (AAULYP) group is an auxiliary of the Austin Area Urban League 501c(3). We exist to empower young professionals between the ages of 21-40 to make a difference in the Greater Austin area through community activism and membership development.

AAULYP’s purpose is to build a positive synergy throughout the Austin community that will advance activism in this new age. Our mission is to support our Austin Area Urban League affiliate through humanitarianism and philanthropy by “Partying With A Purpose.” In the past decade, the AAULYPs have engaged in programming supporting small businesses, youth development, and homelessness.

It's the Mission for us

We are advocates for the amazing work of the Austin Area Urban League, and we are committed to carrying on its legacy of empowering residents in the Greater Austin Area and changing lives. AAULYP is devoted to community engagement, professional development, fund-raising, and supporting historically underrepresented businesses. We also provide the resources for both dynamic dialogue and innovative programming focused on addressing economic and social marginalization.

  • Advocacy & Community Engagement
  • Personal Wellness & Professional Development
  • Mentorship Programming (Internal & External)
