Mission

The Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis serves to assist it’s community securing economic self-reliance, social equality, and civil rights. While they offer the basic community outreach programs, such as clothes closests, a food pantry, the Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis seeks to empower the community through offering a variety of programs from education opportunities, job placement training to home ownership/financial wariness. The Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis has recently opened a new branch and are looking to expand their programs. One such program involves helping community members recieve A+ Certification. For more information about the Urban League, see their website at http://www.ulstl.org/.

The Urban League’s Priorites

The Necessary
The Urban League needs six computers with Windows XP installed (license provided by the Urban League) with the additions of Adobe, Spyware programs, Microsoft Office 2003 (license provided by the Urban League) and Norton Anti-virsus (license provided by the Urban League). Also, the Urban League has a printer (a HP 4352 TN), so the proper drivers will have to be installed so the computers can use it. Our site coordinator, Donna, has also emailed us a list of the computers that need hardware upgrades.

The Wanted
There were other programs that may need to be installed either by us or at a later date. One program requires 265 MB RAM and a certain allotment of hard drive space. There was also a mention of adding some “parental controls” for filtering and to prevent users from downloading music.
