CEO Jennifer Lesko says that they are trying to re-brand the league so that the community knows about all of the helpful programs.

"For years the Urban League was just known as a place that did youth programs. What we want to do is re-brand the League, get the message out there, so people can be aware of all the community programs that we do," said CEO of the Urban League Jennifer Lesko.

The Broome County Urban League's mission is to enable minorities and the urban poor in securing economic self-reliance, parity and power.
