Year Up’s one-year program works with young adults, ages 18-24, who are unemployed and not in school, and motivated to acquire additional training which includes communication and work place skills needed in business. After training, students intern with a local company for six months. Year Up then helps them make the transition to new careers or school. In 2016 Supervisor Simitian championed a broader effort that enables the Year Up program model to scale to additional sites. As a result, Year Up now brings its Career Readiness Curriculum to places where students are already pursuing education towards a job.
