Join Our Young Professional Board

Interested in doing more for your community & learning more about philanthropy? Want to fuel social change? Our Young Professional Board (YPB) meets monthly, and is a group of passionate individuals that enable us to provide life-saving services to some of New York City’s most vulnerable and exploited populations by shaping UJC from the inside. It’s also a fun way to network, and meet other New York City residents who care about social justice. Join our community of changemakers!

YPB is currently looking for new members – contact development [at] urbanjustice.org if you are interested in learning more! If you are looking for a more casual way to stay involved with our work, please consider signing up for our Justice Initiators (JI). The JI meet the third week every month for exclusive, behind-the-scenes chats with our social justice leaders.
