Year Up

Program support

For growing and strengthening Year Up’s national Electronic and Mobile-Learning Initiative (E/M learning) and to roll it out at their community pilot sites.

Founded in 2000, Year Up is a nationally recognized and research validated workforce development and education program for urban young adults, aged 18-24. Its mission is to close the opportunity divide—the gap between those who have access to education, resources, and living-wage employment, and those who do not—by providing economically disadvantaged young adults with the skills, experience, and support that will empower them to reach their potential through professional careers and higher education.
