Samiyah first learned of the National Urban League through its Chicago chapter. After relocating, she sought the Houston chapter and thus found HAULYP. What she values most about HAULYP is the opportunity to be around like-minded professionals. She appreciates the opportunity to serve the community, all while having a great time.
As an auxiliary of the Houston Area Urban League, we engage young men and women in the movement towards the achievement of professional development, social and economic equality, and community service.
