Year Up's Professional Training Corps

Commitment by

Year Up

In 2011, Year Up committed to adapting its successful direct service program to create a learning pathway for low-income young adults that closely links college and employment. Called the Professional Training Corps (PTC) and modeled on the Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC), the program will reside within a community college and help students both earn an Associate's degree and gain significant, relevant work experience. Through this five-year commitment, Year Up will directly serve 300 young adults and develop a model capable of scaling to serve 100,000 students annually while also meeting student outcome targets and attaining long-term financial sustainability.
