CHALLENGING STUDENTS TO REACH THEIR POTENTIAL.
Our program emphasizes academic and professional rigor, setting expectations high for quality of work and professional behavior. A strong structure guides students through the steps necessary for achieving success in the classroom and the workplace.
THE HIGH SUPPORT, HIGH EXPECTATION MODEL
Our approach focuses on students' professional and personal development to help them achieve economic self-sufficiency.
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 on an internship at one of Year Up's corporate partners. Students earn college credits and a weekly stipend, and are supported by staff advisors, professional mentors, dedicated social services staff, and a powerful network of community-based partners.
