Year Up National Capital Region 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 February of 2006. Over 33,000 young adults in the National Capital Region area do not have access to livable wage careers or higher education, and our students and graduates have proven that these young adults are capable of adding immediate value to local companies. We are working hard to close the Opportunity Divide in this community.
