Year Up Chicago is a one-year, intensive training program that provides low-income young adults, ages 18-24, with a combination of hands-on skill development, college credits, and corporate internships. We opened our doors in September 2010 and have been overwhelmed with the warm welcome from both corporate and community partners. Our founding partners include Citadel, JP Morgan Chase, Bank of America, CDW, Unisys, and AON.

National Louis University Campus

Year Up Chicago at National Louis University will launch in January 2017 at the National Louis University Chicago campus. Year Up Chicago offers an intensive, one-year program for college students, ages 18-24, combining professional coaching, hands-on skill development, and internships at some of America’s top companies. As college students, our young adults have access to the library, tutoring resources, and other services offered by the university, in addition to the services offered by Year Up. As students work toward completing a degree at National Louis University, Year Up Chicago provides them with professional development and work experience, preparing graduates to launch a meaningful career.
