Year Up’s Opportunity Society is a community of philanthropic individuals and families who believe in the potential of our young adults and are committed to closing the Opportunity Divide in this country. Society members understand the stark reality that while talent is equally distributed, opportunity is not. They share hope and a vision of a future in which every young adult has access to the education, experiences, and guidance required to realize their true potential.

Launched in 2016, the Opportunity Society welcomes any donor that gives $1,000 or more in a fiscal year. Investments made by society members enable Year Up to serve many more young adults, maintain high-quality program delivery, and support successful outcomes for our talented students.
