This is an author talk with Gerald Chertavian, author of A Year Up: How a Pioneering Program Teaches Young Adults Real Skills for Real Jobs with Real Success.

Gerald Chertavian, founder and CEO of Year Up, has dedicated his life to closing what he sees as an “Opportunity Divide” that strands millions of young, disadvantaged, yet motivated workers at the bottom of the job ladder. To close that gap, the former technology entrepreneur founded Year Up, an intensive program that offers low-income young adults training, mentorship, internships, and ultimately real jobs – often with Fortune 500 companies.

Following a Year Up class from admissions through graduation, A Year Up lets students share – in their own words – the challenges, failures, and personal successes they have experienced.
