Year Up Greater Boston opened its doors to 22 students in July 2001 as the first Year Up site in the country. In 2017, Year Up Greater Boston will support over 590 students in three sites.
The downtown location at 45 Milk Street is home to 420 Year Up students as well as Year Up’s national headquarters. In 2017, the downtown location will provide coaching, skill development, and internships in Information Technology (Helpdesk/Desktop Support), Financial Operations (Investment Operations), and Software Development (Quality Assurance and Data Analytics). We are inspired by the commitment of our extraordinary community, including our corporate internship partners, our community partners and our volunteers, who provide students across all three sites the support they need to succeed.
Year Up Greater Boston launched its second location in October 2016 at State Street’s John Adams Building in North Quincy. 84 students a year receive coaching and skill development in investment operations and use the company as its extended classroom. State Street employees serve as mentors to each Quincy student, and all Quincy students do their internship within State Street, which has hired over 500 Year Up graduates, the most of any Year Up partner nationwide.
Year Up Greater Boston launched its third location in March 2017 at Roxbury Community College (RCC). Students at the Roxbury site receive coaching, skill development, and internships in sales and customer support and information technology from Year Up as well as access to RCC’s library, tutoring resources, and other services offered by the college. As students work toward a degree at RCC, they will also develop the work experience and network they need for information technology and sales/customer support careers.
