Looking to advance your career?


The Urban League of Greater Madison’s Workforce Development Department seeks to connect job seekers to sustainable employment opportunities. We work to remove barriers that might keep job seekers from gainful employment.

Employ. Educate. Empower.

We got out of prison, we came to Madison, and we started looking for jobs… because of the Urban League, I was able to get into my career, because of the Urban League, my husband was able to get into his career, and because of our careers we were able to buy a house.
