Judson Robinson III • President and CEO

The Impact of an Urban Leaguer

This testimony is a must read for any supporter of the Urban League. Mr. Collins was kind enough to share his story regarding the impact our work has had on his life since becoming a client and completing our Workforce Development, & Training program. As you read through this letter, try to notice the words of appreciation and expressed gratitude. This is the client's way of writing you a thank you letter! Hopefully, you'll enjoy this "real time" view of how much your time, effort and money truly means to our mission at the Greater Houston Area Urban League and how much this opportunity you made possible mattered to this man and his family.

At the age of 19, Galen Collins became a Boatswaines mate in construction with the United States Navy traveling abroad for 3 years. As an alternative to college, he felt that it was the best course of action but in 2000, his tour of duty ended so he left. Galen says, "I was not going to make it a career and since Houston is the 4th largest city, I decided to go come home to pursue other job opportunities".
