New Signature Founder and CEO Christopher Hertz received the Pete Kuchli Urban Empowerment Award from YearUp’s National Capital Region Chapter. This award honors leaders who share YearUp’s values and vision and who are making a strong and measurable impact on young adults.
Year Up is truly one of those rare programs that has a direct, immediate and lasting impact on the community. The entire community is enriched through YearUp’s empowerment of young adults. The YearUp program provides them with the skills, experience, and support that helps them reach their true potential. We have been honored to have the opportunity to assist YearUp in their efforts. New Signature has worked closely with YearUp by sponsoring interns, and providing pro bono training to enhance the educational experience for students and pro bono IT services to improve the productivity of staff and faculty.
Year Up is a one-year, intensive training program that provides urban young adults 18-24, with a unique combination of technical and professional skills, college credits, an educational stipend and corporate internship. The program enables graduates to move on to full-time employment and higher education. Year Up provides opportunities for urban young adults to demonstrate their true potential.
