YEAR UP & WELLINGTON MANAGEMENT
Partnership at a Glance

 

 

Since our partnership began in 2008, the Wellington Management Foundation and the firm have helped us expand our work and reach more young adults across the country. In 2016, Wellington was a lead investor in the growth of our Greater Boston market and the launch of our new campus at Roxbury Community College. Wellington has awarded significant grants to Year Up, including a $1M investment in Year Up's For An Equitable Future campaign in 2021. The firm’s IT department regularly hosts mock interview sessions and networking opportunities with Year Up students, and many employees have volunteered as mentors to our young adults.
