Students Transform Their Lives Through Year Up

Year Up, in partnership with Central Piedmont, equips young adults with the skills training to be career-ready and the opportunity to demonstrate their talent. After six months of training with both Year Up and Central Piedmont, Year Up students earn the opportunity to intern at a leading corporate company in Cyber Security, Project Management or Software Development roles. The internship phase of the program provides access to opportunity and experience needed to begin a meaningful professional career.

Current Central Piedmont and Year Up student, Arrick Rithiphong attests that “without Year Up, [he] would not have been exposed to the skills needed to thrive in [his] career choice”, now a successful Bank of America intern studying Cyber.

Year Up is a program that promises deserving, young adults like Arrick the opportunity to experience what it is like to work in the corporate environment. Take the first step in a life-changing opportunity!
