Helping young adults overcome the challenges of finding a livable wage job with upward mobility is the goal of a new program called Year Up Pittsburgh.

The program offers Housing Authority of the City of Pittsburgh (HACP) residents six months of technical and professional skills training followed by a six month professional internship.

HCAP residents will be referred through the authority’s Resident Employment Program directly to Year Up.

“We’re working as hard as we can to connect young Pittsburgh residents with opportunities and careers, and YUPGH is another great model of the partnerships we need to make those efforts as successful and meaningful as possible,” said Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto.

Year Up Pittsburgh launched in March 2021 and the curriculum will provide students with a general foundation in workplace technology, business communications, soft-skills training, and specialized training in one of three tracks in preparation for an internship job assignment. The tracks are cyber security, web application development and data analytics.

The program is operating in two six-month increments. The first began in March and the second will start in September.

“Year Up Pittsburgh will connect young people in need of an opportunity with top companies that need of their talent, ensuring a more vibrant community and workforce,” said John Galante, Managing Director of Year Up.

Due to covid-19 restrictions, YUPGH is conducting all information sessions, interviews, and onboarding activities virtually. For more information on Year-Up Pittsburgh, go to
