Urban Professionals Community
WHO WE ARE
Urban Professionals Community is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization focused on community building and financial education. Our goal is UPC to serve as the most effective community in the DMV for young black working adults to form friendships and learn how to build wealth.
To establish a community where young black professionals can form deeper relationships, get connected to local resources, and master the tools to build wealth.
WHAT WE DO
We believe that the first step towards economic empowerment for the diaspora is to establish a strong sense of community. From nature hikes to barbeques, museum tours, game nights, and interactive relationship panels, UPC Socials have made our organization a staple in the Greater Washington community since 2017.
UPC Master Classes
(Workshops and Webinars)
Master Classes is our platform to partner with industry experts to educate the community on various wealth-building strategies, including budgeting, debt management, real estate investment, stock market investment, and starting a business. With the guest speaker as the main headline, the remainder of the events still look and feel like a meetup, with engagement activities built in so attendees can continue to feel plugged into the community.
(Peer Mentoring/Accountability Groups)
While Master Classes provide a thorough introduction to a wealth-building topic, Masterminds provide the deep dive. A UPC Mastermind is essentially a peer-to-peer mentoring and accountability group that runs 3 to 6 months, where members deep dive into learning a specific wealth-related topic (ex. stock or real estate investing).
