YUPRO Starts up in Bay Area!

Golden Gate Bridge

Home of the first West Coast Year Up site and bustling Silicon Valley, it is no surprise that the Year Up Bay Area community has welcomed YUPRO with open arms. Many of the Year Up Bay Area Alumni have experienced post-program success by transitioning into some of the most competitive and well known companies in the country, and YUPRO looks forward to building off of the strong, positive reputation the Year Up graduates have created. YUPRO is already engaged with over a dozen Bay Area Corporate Partners that are interested in hiring Year Up Graduates and Alumni, thereby meeting their demand for well trained, diverse and competent workers.

Jay Banfield, Founding Executive Director of Year Up Bay Area, shares his excitement of this new resource for alums and partners alike.

“YUPRO is a continuation of the work we are doing to close the Opportunity Divide that exists within this country. At Year Up we train many of the most motivated, determined and resilient young adults in the job market, and YUPRO will be a way for us to bring that talent to companies across the US on a larger scale.”
