Why City Year loves Year Up

The Year Up mission is to close the opportunity divide by ensuring that young adults gain the skills, experiences and support that will empower them to reach their potential through careers and higher education. Year Up is committed to ensuring equitable access to economic opportunity, education and justice for all young adults—no matter their background, income or zip code. Employers face a growing need for talent while millions are left disconnected from the economic mainstream. These inequities only further perpetuate the opportunity divide that exists in our country—a divide that Year Up is determined and positioned to close.

Year Up recognizes the City Year experience as a strong indicator of future success as a Year Up program participant. Learn more about the Year Up student experience.
