Year Up Rhode Island is a one-year, intensive training program that provides under-served young adults, ages 18-24, with a combination of hands-on skills development, coursework eligible for college credit, corporate internships, and wraparound support.
The first half of Year Up’s program is the Learning and Development phase, during which you receive classroom instruction and develop marketable skills in a high-growth career field, such as information technology and business operations. You also learn important soft skills necessary for succeeding in the workplace.
In the second half of the year, you will apply what you have learned and gain valuable work experience by interning with one of our over 25 corporate partners in the Providence region.
