About Year Up
Year Up is a one-year, intensive training program that provides urban young adults 18-24, with a unique combination of technical and professional skills, college credits, an educational stipend and corporate apprenticeship.
Our success is our graduates -- enabling them to move on to full-time employment and higher education. Year Up is about providing opportunities for urban young adults to demonstrate their true potential.
Year Up's mission is to close the opportunity divide by providing urban young adults with the skills, experiences and support that will empower them to reach their potential through professional careers and higher education
