We are back, and this time, we are doing it Harlem Nights style! Join us for this year’s YP Rising and Scholarship Gala where the Greater Phoenix Urban League Young Professionals (YP) will be awarding three changemakers in the community with the YP Rising Award; an award given to those who are contributing to the diverse leadership of the valley through economic empowerment, education, and civic engagement.

This event is a fundraiser to raise funds for future scholars here in the valley and working to reduce the financial barrier to allow them to pursue their career field of choice.  We will be awarding 3 scholarships this year to very deserving students.

The award application for both the YP Rising Award and the Phoenix Rising Scholarship will be available today!

Additionally, tickets will be on sale now, and sponsorship opportunities are available.  If interested in becoming a sponsor, please reach out to us at
