What We Do
Collaborating with our partners, donors, and staff, GMUL offers programs in education and employment that open doors to opportunities that give individuals and families the chance to improve their lives and their community. Our advocacy and civic engagement efforts tackle serious issues impacting the community and seek partnerships and solutions to successfully address them.
Greater Milwaukee Urban League education programs effectively assist youth through programs including, individual school partnerships with Milwaukee Public Schools; STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) programs; peer mentoring; and a laptop and scholarship awards program for graduating seniors.
Advocacy is our newest program area. We are making a difference through our leadership in several programs areas including efforts to increase homeownership rates in African-American communities and improve health outcomes. GMUL continues our successful Get Out The Vote effort, which reached thousands of Milwaukee area residents and provided important information on voter rights and voting access in 2020.
