About the Gala

In celebration of its 15th Anniversary, Year Up aims to raise $2,500,000 to support its nationally-recognized programming that has helped more than 10,000 young adults move from poverty to professional careers and helped hundreds of national and local businesses tap into a pipeline of incredible talent. More than 1,000 Year Up stakeholders from around the country will join us to celebrate a historic moment in our growth, the impact we have today, and the future we are looking to achieve together. The fun and inspiring evening will include a contest of student-submitted videos, the first ever inductions into the Year Up Opportunity Hall of Fame, as well as live performances and featured guests.
