About Greater Baltimore Urban League Youth Empowerment Program
The purpose of GBLA is to support the objectives of GBUL, to promote the professional development of GBLA members, and to provide community service. GBLA’s mission is to engage young professionals, from ages 21 to 40, in NUL’s movement towards enabling African Americans and other minorities to secure economic self-reliance, parity and power, and civil rights.
We are a dynamic organization for young professionals looking for ways to give back to the Baltimore community, connect with the Urban League movement, and network with like-minded individuals age 21-40.

What our Students say
Why Greater Baltimore Urban League?
The Greater Baltimore Urban League (GBUL) defines educational equity as providing all students, regardless of biological, behavioral or social factors, with the appropriate supports to perform well in school and obtain positive post-secondary opportunities. These supports include:
- Social and emotional resources as needed and promptly;
- Providing all students with access to rigorous and well-rounded curriculum along with the appropriate supplemental material to support learning the content;
- Providing parents/guardians with information to empower them to make decisions about their child’s academics and career trajectory in a comprehensive manner;
- Holding all stakeholders, inclusive of State Education Agencies, Local Education Agencies, Students, Parents/Guardians and other identified partners, accountable for their role in school and student outcomes.
We continue to create programs and initiatives that address the challenges of African American and other minority students in school districts within Maryland’s public education system.
