As a leading financial services company, Wells Fargo & Company strives to attract, develop, motivate, and retain the best team members, and understands that success comes from inviting and incorporating diverse perspectives. For more than a decade, Wells Fargo has supported these values by partnering with Year Up to gain access to a pipeline of motivated, diverse young adults. Today, the partnership has grown to include multiple locations across the country and Wells Fargo continues to be a highly engaged and valued partner to Year Up.

I have been extremely pleased with the dedication, focus and quality of work from the Year Up interns. I am now sponsoring my third cohort, each having 5 interns. The first cohort was a learning experience for everyone, but the outcome was outstanding. We have also been able to expand the type of work being done, and the feedback from the broader management team that relies on the interns has been stellar.

My life wouldn’t be where it is today if not for the combined support of the Year Up community and how welcoming my experience was at Wells Fargo.
