Metropolitan Orlando Urban League Jobs: Overview

Established in 1910, The National Urban League is the nation's oldest and largest community-based movement devoted to empowering African Americans to enter the economic and social mainstream. Today, the National Urban League, headquartered in New York City, spearheads the non-partisan efforts of its local affiliates. 

Founded on August 5, 1977, the Metropolitan Orlando Urban League is one of over 100 nationwide affiliates of the National Urban League. The agency formed when concerned former City of Orlando Mayor Carl Langford spearheaded an effort along with other recognized and respected community leaders who felt the African American community in Orlando needed support and could benefit from an organization such as the Urban League. Mayor Langford formed a sponsoring committee and the Metropolitan Orlando Urban League was born.
