Year Up is a non-profit organization dedicated to closing the skills gap for thousands of young adults across the US by empowering people to move from minimum wage jobs to meaningful carreers. Year Up has served 24,000+ students to date across 25 cities nationwide.
Year Up provides a one-year intensive training program, featuring six months of skills training and a six month internship. Students specialize in one of five tracks: Financial Operations, Information Technology, Business Operations, Software Development, and Sales & Customer Support. With training specifically tailored to meet workforce needs, students graduate career-ready.
Scrum.org is working with Year Up to deliver Professional Scrum training to Year Up students, and our own David Spinks will be providing training to Year Up students at the start of 2021.
