Congratulations Year Up Philadelphia Class of Fall 2022!

Just a few short months ago, you were beginning your Year Up journey full of hope and expectations, eager to begin your professional careers. Today, we celebrate you as you have now completed this milestone in your lives! You have built a network of supporters, colleagues, and managers—a long list of people who will be ever-present as you continue your professional career. In challenging times, you discovered ways to connect to each other and continue to pursue your goals in the virtual environment, and you have certainly set the bar high for those who will follow in your footsteps. You have proven that through hard work and a positive attitude, it’s possible to achieve anything we strive for in life. It’s a privilege to have been part of your journey, and I wish you continued success in your future endeavors.

With great admiration,

Whitley Cameron

About the Greater Philadelphia Virtual Campus

Building on Year Up’s 20 years of experience preparing talent for the workforce, this program combines our demonstrated outcomes and best practices with new, flexible online learning opportunities.

Over the course of the program, students will receive hands-on training, real-world corporate access, a work immersion experience, and unparalleled support. At seven months long—five months shorter than Year Up’s traditional model—students will more quickly land a job at a leading company in search of top talent.

The first three months of technical and professional skills training will be part-time and primarily virtual, providing students with increased flexibility to complete their program work. Students will then have the opportunity to immerse themselves in a four-month full-time work experience at a top company.
