Urban Youth Empowerment Program

The Urban Youth Empowerment Program (UYEP) – a Signature Program of the National Urban League (NUL) – started as an innovative demonstration to provides work readiness preparation, internships and on-the-job training to youth ages 16-24 who are not in school and are seen as “at-risk.” The goal of UYEP is to reduce the risks that these young people face, such as long-term unemployment and incarceration.
