Community Resources

Through the Greater Washington Urban League's (league) Community Resources Division, a variety of activities, programs, and initiatives are administered. The goal of the division is to reach out to the broader community to support the services of GWUL designed to enhance the quility of life of the residents of the service area of the League.

Services are provided to children, teens, adults and senior citizens. These services are provided in collaboration with other organizations, churches, businesses, and government agencies. 

In addition, education services include scholarships, community service opportunties, internships and externships. Our programs cover the education continuum from 6 to 18.  


Greater Washington Urban League offers a variety of health services to the community including health information resources as well as direct services. Information is available on a broad array of subjects from immunization (children, youth and adults) to nutrition and fitness to smoking cessation. The League is currently administering a smoking cessation program, Empowered to Quit, to provide community residents with information about the dangers of smoking and offering them the opportunity to start a quit program.
