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 internship.
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. We have achieved excellent results to date:
- 100% placement of qualified students into internships
- 95% of interns meet or exceed partner expectations
- 84% of graduates employed or in college full time within four months of graduation
- $15/hr average wage at placement
