The Buffalo Urban League Young Professionals (BULYPNY) is joining a national initiative. Today is the start of “JOIN” week.

“What it is, is a huge membership drive to try to draw more young professionals into the movement,” said Jamil Crews, Treasurer for BULYPNY.

There are 56 different chapters taking part in this weeklong push. The Urban League encourages a proactive approach from their community’s young leaders.

“You’re able to give back to the community and you’re able to provide a leadership role,’ explains Yolanda Abraham, Membership Chair for BULYPNY. “That will essentially create a better local community as well as a better world.”

Throughout the year volunteer efforts, networking events, and personal and professional development services are available.
