Program Update

Current students in our January 2021 graduation class will be the last traditional Year Up cohort hosted by West Los Angeles College. Beginning in 2021, Year Up Los Angeles will continue to serve our students through a series of pilot programs in partnership with Los Angeles City College and West Lost Angeles College and employers across the region.

 

2021 Program

In January 2021, Year Up is launching an innovative, accelerated program in Los Angeles. 

Building on Year Up’s 20 years of experience helping to prepare talented young adults for the workforce, this program combines our demonstrated outcomes and best practices with new, accelerated learning opportunities.

Hulu and Snapchat, in partnership with Year Up, are looking for qualified individuals to participate in a 6-month, full-time, paid internship. Once accepted to the program, applicants will participate in a 2-week interactive bootcamp, building professional skills and a strong career portfolio in preparation for a hiring event with Hulu and Snap. After a series of interviews, candidates will be selected to enter the internship or receive employment assistance from YUPRO (Year Up’s award-winning staffing firm).
