Closing the Opportunity Divide

Year Up empowers low-income young adults to go from poverty to professional careers in one year  

Year Up New York is a one-year, intensive training program that provides low-income young adults, ages 18-24, with a combination of hands-on skills development, coursework eligible for college credit, corporate internships, and wraparound support. We welcomed our first class in September 2006 and have since grown to two locations in the city to serve many more urban young adults from across all five boroughs.

Individuals seeking to begin their career in the financial services industry can learn how to apply to Year Up on our website.

It’s just one year of your life to the career of your dreams.
