Class of 2016

My experience with Urban Leadership Foundation was motivational and inspirational. The piece of the programming that stands out the most for me was the community service project that I co-chaired with other people which was so impactful in many ways to the youth in our community. It left me feeling grateful to be a part of such a successful project. The team building and work put into this project helped me to develop the additional skills that I have been able to use in other leadership roles since graduating from the program in 2016. I have Urban Leadership Foundation to thank for providing me with such an awesome opportunity which in turn helped me to accomplish my goals.


Our programming provides participants with leadership training and education as it relates to becoming a more effective business, political and/or community leader. Our flagship program, ULF Connect Leadership, is a 10 month, 22+ class leadership training program. We hope that our training not only equips individuals with the tool necessary to become more effective leaders but also inspire them to lead.

In addition to providing training/education, we provide advancement and advocacy services. Upon graduation from our leadership program, our goal is to assist individuals with advancing both their careers and leadership goals. We do this by actively identifying business, political and community leadership opportunities in which we think our participants would be a fit and advocate on their behalf. We also provide mentorships and other resources for individuals looking for one on one training.
