The Year Up Internship Program is a partnership between Stanford University and Year Up.
Year Up is an organization that works with motivated young adults from underprivileged and economically disadvantaged communities to provide technology skills-training and internship opportunities.
University IT (UIT) coordinates this partnership on behalf of the university. The Stanford IT Community sponsors Year Up interns in entry level positions throughout campus, giving participants invaluable experience while the IT organizations benefit from skilled and motivated individuals.
This program is part of Stanford IDEAL IT, which provides innovative approaches for increasing diversity, inclusion, equity, and access across Stanford IT.
