Year Up Logo

ISSA-NOVA is excited to be associated with Year Up National Capital Region.  Year Up’s mission is to close the Opportunity Divide by providing urban young adults with the skills, experience, and support that will empower them to reach their potential through professional careers and higher education.

Year Up is a non-profit organization that has created a one-year intensive training and education program that provides high school graduates and GED recipients with a combination of hands-on skill development and corporate internship opportunities.

The first six months of the program focuses on technical and professional skill building, while the second six months focuses on applying these skills through corporate internships. Students also earn up to 18 college credits.  For additional information on volunteer opportunities contact ISSA-NOVA Director of Philanthropy.  For corporate partnering opportunities please contact YearUp directly at
