Help spread the word

Closing the Opportunity Divide begins with awareness

Year Up alone cannot create opportunity for over 6 million disconnected young adults. This is why we advocate for larger systemic changes that will help close the Opportunity Divide, and encourage thinking differently about where talent resides in our country. You can help by raising awareness about the divide and by supporting policies to close it. A good place to start is by joining us on Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn and spreading the word to your friends.

Invest

Your gift will help create opportunities for urban young adults to reach their full potential.

Year Up's growth would not be possible without the financial contributions that support our program. We invite you to join a group of committed individuals and organizations by donating to our program.
