Closing the Opportunity Divide
An estimated five million youths in this country have not advanced beyond a high school education. They are not employed, nor do they have the opportunity to enroll in postsecondary education. Year Up is set on reversing this opportunity divide. Through a one year immersion program, Year Up gives urban youth the education and skills that they need to pursue a professional career and higher education.
