On October 5, 2011, Year Up students, employers, and supporters across the country donned professional attire and rallied to showcase the untapped talent of our urban young adults.

Over 600 people walked for opportunity in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, New York, San Francisco, Seattle, and Washington DC. The Walk for Opportunity was a historic step in Year Up’s journey for social and economic prosperity and the belief that to galvanize the US economy, we must connect America’s skilled urban young adults with the businesses that need their talent.
