The social service organization has been improving the social and economic conditions for those lacking in cultural, social and financial capital for almost a century.

Every year, for the last 10 years, the New York Urban League Young Professionals has hosted a black-tie affair called REBIRTH! The primary goal is to raise funds so that the organization may continue to provide scholarships, disseminate information and advocacy. REBIRTH! also pays tribute to the economic and creative contributions of  the most influential African Americans.
