43 Forum: Business Development

Posted: Updated:

The Urban League of Greater Cleveland is a non-profit social service organization. 

It is connected to the National Urban League as one of 97 affiliates in 36 states.  

Part of the Urban League's mission is to improve the economic, cultural, social and educational conditions affecting all citizens of Cuyahoga County.  

My guests, Marshal Mockabee and Donna Dabbs and I talked about ways the Urban League is bouncing back from some economic and management problems it had.  We discussed the programs it has for youth and educational components teaching youth about proper behavior, respect and entrepreneurship.  We also talked about the Cuyahoga small business development center run by the Urban League.  It provides services for minority communities who want to either start a business or further the growth of his or her business.  They provide group instruction in the beginning and switches to individual instruction once a business shows signs of improvement and stability.  The Urban League further champions social issues to include voting rights, job creation, job discrimination and other social justice issues.
