Closing the Opportunity Divide in Boston

Year Up Boston opened its doors in January of 2001 to a class of 22 students. Now serving more than 200 students each year at sites in downtown Boston, Year Up Boston continues to demonstrate the successful impact the program has on the lives of our urban young adults. With more than 40 corporate internship partners, 100 community partners and 300 volunteers, the commitment of the communities in which we serve has been inspiring and motivating.
