President’s New Year’s Message

Dear Urban League Young Professionals,

As your president, I know that your time is valuable and I am thankful for all that you have contributed to the Los Angeles Urban League Young Professionals (LAULYP) in 2014. Your commitment to the community is priceless and is never overlooked. This holiday season, as you fellowship with loved ones, know that the executive board and I appreciate you greatly and wish you the best in all of your endeavors.

The Los Angeles Urban League has made amazing strides this year to enhance the community, and you have helped to make it happen! As a Young Professional (YP) in the Urban League Movement, you bring powerful impact and change through your membership or by sharing the Urban League mission with others. To those who have served in a leadership position, on a committee, a special project or in any enhanced capacity as a YP, I commend you and encourage you to continue your participation as we empower communities and change lives.

As we embark upon the New Year, I assure that you will enjoy your time as a YP member. Knowing that the work of bettering Los Angeles’ underrepresented communities is never done, we will march on with our civic and political initiatives that can foster relationships and add valuable improvements. You will also see a new Leadership Training Institute hosted by LAULYP to directly enhance the lives and skill sets of our members. Finally, in addition to our networking and leisure engagements, you will see the community service work at local missions, health awareness walks, youth & educational development programs along with many of the existing projects you’ve come to love about the YPs.

I wish you a blessed holiday and a prosperous New Year.

I look forward to continually serving you in the Urban League Movement throughout 2015!


Yours truly,

Michael Ferrera
