Volunteer with the Guild

Established in 1942, by Mollie Moon, the National Council of Urban League Guild is an auxiliary volunteer group that supports the National Urban League and our affiliates across the country. Throughout its 77-year history, the Guild has stimulated, developed, and promoted volunteer advocacy through local Urban League Guilds. The work continues today - empowering communities and changing lives.

Guild volunteers – aka “Guilders” – are the heart and soul of the Urban League movement, contributing thousands of volunteer hours each year and fulfilling a pivotal role in connecting the Urban League’s mission to the communities we serve. Guild members act as tutors and mentors, helping community members develop leadership skills and engage them in the issues that shape their lives. Also, Guilders raise funds for affiliates, and act as goodwill community ambassadors for the Urban League affiliate movement.
