Join us in the fight to close the Opportunity Divide

When you graduate from Year Up, you join a nationwide network of over 5,200 alumni who are becoming leaders in their fields and changing the way America sees urban young adults.

"Year Up has done an exceptional job showing a lot of concern and support during my job search, as well as being extremely resourceful."

Sam Habtegeorgis, Year Up Bay Area graduate

"At Morgan Stanley, I am learning about leadership, how to have a bigger voice, and how to create my personal and professional brand."

Bobby Leak, Year Up Baltimore graduate

"If you would have told me a couple of years ago that I would be interning at American Express, helping VPs, I would never in a million years believe you."

Jonathan Garcia, Year Up New York graduate

Stay connected.

Join fellow alumni and other Year Up affiliates on LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter to share your thoughts, get updates, and learn about professional and service opportunities.

We're (still) here for you.

Year Up staff is still here to help you find jobs, build your career, and continue to reach your potential – no matter how long ago (or recently) you graduated. We also just love hearing from you! Our Career and Alumni Services staff is available whenever you need them. Contact a staff member at your local site by choosing from the dropdown above.

Help others cross the Opportunity Divide.

Who better to guide a young adult towards opportunity than a successful professional who was once in the same shoes? Get in touch with your local Alumni Association to learn how you can help others reach their potential.
