Urban League participated in African American Professional Day at North High School. The North High Black Leadership Student Council held its 2nd Annual African American Professional Day. Our Urban League of Nebraska participants were involved in this initiative, specifically our Whitney Young Jr. Academy students who are a part of the leadership of this much-needed organization (President – Nadia Spurlock, Vice-President Sanjaya Bolton). Mr. Tyvon Smith was the lead student ambassador and event director on African American Professional Day.
The Whitney Young Academy empowers youth through education and career preparation. We provide opportunities for participant’s academic, personal, career and social development. We also assist students in developing long-term and short-term goals, which will lead to a productive adult life experience.
