Examples of Programs We Support

Advancing Black Entrepreneurs

In partnership with Chase for Business, Black Enterprise, the National Urban League, and the National Minority Supplier Development Council, we are promoting a program called Advancing Black Entrepreneurs – a collection of practical resources to help Black business owners grow and scale their business.

This Educational program, specifically for Black business owners, highlights topics that are vital to business growth and sustainability. These 90-minute guided digital sessions are focused on how business owners can address immediate and long-term financial needs to build resiliency.

Urban Tech Jobs Program

Urban Tech Jobs Program (UTJP) targets the long-term unemployed and trains them for middle-skill occupations in the Information Technology (IT) sector. By placing unemployed participants into entry-level IT positions and coupling the work with training, participants can progress to higher-wage occupations.

Too many American workers, upon losing employment, remain unemployed for months at a time, even as thousands of high-growth jobs in the Information Technology industry are available due to an inadequate supply of appropriately trained workers. The National Urban League, in partnership with national employers such as Comcast, AT&T, and Time Warner Cable, launched the Urban Tech Jobs Program (UTJP) to train these long-term unemployed individuals for various IT positions.
