Year Up Providence is a one-year, intensive training program that provides low-income young adults, ages 18-24, with a combination of hands-on skills development, coursework eligible for college credit, corporate internships, and wraparound support. Our site opened its doors in January of 2005. We are proud to be Year Up’s first expansion site outside of the Boston area and are committed to serving this community’s urban young adults. We are humbled by the tremendous support that we have received and look forward to working with Providence’s many talented young people, its businesses, and our community.
