Podcast: Building Year Up From the Ground Up

Founded in 2000, Year Up works to arm low-income young adults with the skills and connections to rise from poverty to professional careers in the space of 12 months. Active in 16 urban areas, the Boston-based organization has served some 13,000 students and last year boosted revenue by more than 60 percent to nearly $115 million.

In this segment from The Business of Giving, founder and CEO Gerald Chertavian explains how he established Year Up and shares the innovative business model that has made the group the fastest-growing youth-focused nonprofit of the 21st century.
