Fall 2023

Our January 2021 graduating class was the last cohort hosted by Peirce College. We will continue to serve Greater Philadelphia with a new, technology-enabled program. Thank you for your partnership, Peirce College!

New Program Launch

In Fall 2020, Year Up launched an innovative, accelerated program model in Greater Philadelphia. Building on Year Up’s 20 years of experience preparing talent for the workforce, this program combines our demonstrated outcomes and best practices with new, flexible online learning opportunities.

Over the course of the program, students will receive hands-on training, real-world corporate access, a work immersion experience, and unparalleled support. In one year or less—shorter than Year Up’s traditional model in some cases—students will more quickly land a job at a leading company in search of top talent.

The first three months of technical and professional skills training will be part-time and primarily virtual, providing students with increased flexibility to complete their program work. *Then students in the Consumer Banking pathway will go on to earn 3 months of internship experience at a top company, and all other training pathways will go on to earn a 6 month internship experience at a top company.
*you will learn more during your onboarding process
