Welcome to the Knoxville Area Urban League. As president and CEO, I want to personally thank you for your interest in our organization and share what we do every day at the Urban League.
Our mission is to provide a skilled and diverse workforce; increase and retain homeownership; support economic and small business development; and advocate and enhance education efforts for students of color.
While that explains what we do, why we do it is just as important. The opportunity for all to thrive, earn, own and prosper opens the doors to the American dream to everyone – and fundamentally changes a community. I have the privilege of witnessing those transformations every day.
We have an engaged board of directors who work alongside our passionate and dedicated staff members to improve lives and maximize the potential of those we have the privilege of serving.
Thank you for being part of the solution as we strive to be the leader in promoting economic and social equity in our community.
Phyllis Y. Nichols
President and CEO
