A Message from NYULYP President, Jemar T. Ward
Thank you for taking the time to read The GRIOT. I love how it’s turning out and grateful to the Communications Committee for being innovative and keeping the content fresh and relative. Thank you to all that have made submissions and shared your knowledge with the young professional community.
I want to tell you all about a wonderful opportunity for the New York Urban League Young Professionals to win unrestricted grant money from Anheuser-Busch. The contest is called ‘Be a Better Bud’ (BABB). BABB is a partnership between the National Urban League Young Professionals and Anheuser-Busch to support education and economic empowerment throughout the country. Of the projects submitted, up to 40 will receive a $4,000 grant! We have submitted 5 videos and have the opportunity to win up to $20,000! How amazing is that? If you are at all familiar with not for profit fundraising, you know that unrestricted grant money is difficult to find. We cannot win this money without your help. We need you to register at www.beabetterbud.com and vote for our videos. Visit the following links to view the videos:
- Youth Speak: A Community Mayoral Forum
- Executive Education Forum
- Building Wealth Creation: Finding Financial Freedom
- NYC Millennial Mayoral Forum
- Get Your Mind Right Body Right
I thank you in advance for taking the time to vote! Winners will be announced at the National Urban League Conference and we hope to see you there!
Yours in the Movement,
Jemar T. Ward | NYULYP President
