BENEFITING: YEAR UP

EVENT: JobRaising

THE STORY:

6.7 million young adults in the US are “disconnected”, out of work and out of school, lacking the resources and guidance needed to succeed in today’s economy.  Helping young adults to gain the skills and knowledge today’s businesses demand puts those young adults on a path to postsecondary education, successful careers and economic self-sufficiency.

Our Vision

In the future, every urban young adult will have access to the education, experiences, and guidance required to realize his or her true potential.

Our Mission

Year Up's mission is to close the Opportunity Divide by providing urban young adults with the skills, experience, and support that will empower them to reach their potential through professional careers and higher education.

We achieve this mission through a high support, high expectation model that combines marketable job skills, stipends, internships and college credits. Our holistic approach focuses on students' professional and personal development to place these young adults on a viable path to economic self-sufficiency.

How YOU Can Make a Difference

Over the past decade, Year Up has served over 6,000 students and will continue to serve about 1,900 students annually across our 10 sites. But it’s not enough. We know it’s not enough if we want all 6.7 million disconnected youth to achieve their potential and finally close the Opportunity Divide. So we’re expanding into cities, creating college partnerships, and working with Fortune 1000 Companies. And we’re asking for your help. Donate to Year Up through our CrowdRise page and help us win up to $150,000 through the Job Raising Challenge!
