Year Up Chicago is a one-year, intensive training program that provides low-income young adults, ages 18-24, with a combination of hands-on skill development, college credits, and corporate internships. We opened our doors in September 2010 and have been overwhelmed with the warm welcome from both corporate and community partners. Our founding partners include Citadel, JP Morgan Chase, Bank of America, CDW, Unisys, and AON.
