The challenges our customers face today in the quest for talent acquisition are many. 

Year Up Professional Resources (YUPRO) is a talent placement and professional development firm that works exclusively with alumni of the Year Up program.  Our unique talent solution provides a rapidly growing network of customers with a unique, socially responsible alternative to traditional staffing methods.

As a Public Benefit Corporation (PBC), YUPRO operates as a market-driven company with a social mission—to support Opportunity Youth in finding jobs where they can earn livable wages and experience continuity of work in a professional role.

Here is the difference:

  • We represent and place only Year Up graduates who all successfully completed the intensive year-long program.
  • We provide a pool of dedicated, determined and skilled talent for permanent roles, contract assignments and conversions from temporary to permanent assignments.
  • We match our associates’ skills and their known performance history with our customers’ needs and manage the relationship.
  • We stay engaged with both our associates and our customers as the partnership is established and the work begins; Check-ins, site visits, online training and one-on-one career coaching is all a piece of the plan at YUPRO.
  • We are committed to the long-term career advancement of our members and act as a resource for their continued development as contributors in their organizations.
  • We return our profits to Year Up for additional alumni programs and services.
