YEAR UP

The Opportunity Divide

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.

Year Up is a one-year, intensive training program that provides low-income young adults, ages 18-24, with a combination of hands-on skill development, college credits, and corporate internships.

 

Empowering students to reach their potential.

 

Our program emphasizes academic and professional rigor, setting high expectations for quality work and professional behavior. A strong program structure guides students through the steps necessary for achieving success in the classroom and the workplace.

 

For the first six months of the program, students develop technical and professional skills in the classroom. Students then apply those skills during the second six months during an internship with one of Year Up's 250+ corporate partners. During their time at Year Up, students also earn up to 23 college credits and an educational stipend, and are supported by staff advisors, professional mentors, dedicated social services staff, and a powerful network of community-based partners.

 

Since its founding in 2000, Year Up has served over 6,000 young adults
