LULYP offers many opportunities for companies and organizations to reach a highly-sought demographic; young urban professionals who are on the cutting edge of popular culture and in rapid pursuit of successful careers. Partnering with LULYP means not only targeting these audiences directly, but also supporting the efforts to provide meaningful community service and promote empowerment among disadvantaged populations.
Our members and key audiences include a sizeable following the “who’s who’s” among metro Louisville’s young professionals.
They represent a wide array of occupations and businesses-experts in the legal, medical, banking, finance, marketing, education, engineering and elected officials to name a few. These young professionals are in the prime of their lives—making the most of a time for advancing their careers, establishing personal and professional networks, laying the foundation for their futures, making purchases that had to wait until “after college” and building wealth.
LULYP makes reaching these audiences simple. Here are a few ways your company or organization can partner with LULYP:
• Sponsoring of LULYP signature programs
• Sponsoring of LULYP monthly meetings
• Setting up promotional booths at monthly workshops and/or special events
• Including a Web page link and/or company logo on LULYP Web site
• Promoting special initiatives and opportunities through the LULYP E-Newsletter
• Providing coupons and promotional discounts to LULYP members
• Providing materials, goods, services and support
LULYP’s Signature Programs and dedication to Community Service is in tandem with the mission of the Louisville Urban League while aligning with the National Urban League’s Five-Point Empowerment Agenda.
