The Guild

The National Council of Urban League Guilds is the national association of volunteer auxiliaries of the Urban League. In existence for more than 63 years, Guild members donate their time to deliver services that extend public understanding
and support the National Urban League and its programs.



Guilders range in age from 40 to 95 and are active in more than 85 chapters in Urban League communities across the nation. Considered the heart and soul of the Urban League movement, Guilders contribute thousands of volunteer hours annually and play a pivotal role in connecting the Urban League to communities.


Started in New York City in 1942 by Mrs. Mollie Moon, the National Council of Guilds was organized in 1952. The Urban League of Kansas Guild was organizing in the 70’s and reactivated in 1983 under the leadership of Mrs. Alyce Christopher-Ballard (deceased), Mrs. Anita Burney and Mrs. Lillie Mae Burns .
