Year Up could be model by:
- offering a six month training program followed by a six month internship and charging the companies to receive partipants as interns
- involving employers in the design of the program to ensure training is matched to market demand
- forming partnerships with community colleges to offer course credit for Year Up classes
- paying participants $200 a week
- helping participants find corporate mentors
- practicing important soft skills
- using a points system that is based upon performance in the program
