The 23 students of Cohort 11 were joined by family and friends as they celebrated their completion of the Year Up Baltimore program with a graduation ceremony Jan. 20 at Baltimore City Community College’s Fine Arts Theater.

The nonprofit Year Up Baltimore connects Baltimore young adults ages 18 to 24 who are looking for opportunities with companies who need their talent. These young adults spend six months in the classroom at Year Up learning the business, information technology or cybersecurity skills employers want while also attending Baltimore City Community College. Then they intern for six months with one of Year Up’s partner companies, applying their skills and gaining the critical work experience necessary to provide the young adults with the professional development and work knowledge necessary to launch a meaningful career.
