The Chicago Urban League was incorporated in June 1917, as one of the first affiliates of the National Urban League.

The Chicago Urban League established a program designed to create a pipeline of informed, motivated, perceptive, authentic, and connected talent (or, “IMPACT”), who will become the next generation of Chicago leaders.
