In 2000, under the leadership of then-CEO James Shelby, the Greater Sacramento Urban League broke ground on its 28,000-square-foot facility in Del Paso Heights. The GSUL was founded in 1968, and has been the premier workforce development center for underserved residents in Sacramento ever since. It is an affiliate of the National Urban League, and over the years has provided job skills to thousands of youth and adults from underrepresented communities in Sacramento.
