Volunteer with the Guild
Urban League Guild is an auxiliary volunteer group that supports the Urban League of Middle Tennessee. Throughout its history, the Guild has stimulated, developed, and promoted volunteer advocacy. The work continues today - empowering communities and changing lives.
Guild volunteers – aka “Guilders” – are the heart and soul of the ULMT movement, contributing hundreds of volunteer hours each year and fulfilling a pivotal role in connecting ULMT's mission to the communities we serve. Guild members act as tutors and mentors, helping community members develop leadership skills and engage them in the issues that shape their lives. Also, Guilders raise funds for ULMT and act as goodwill community
ambassadors for the ULMT.
