HSPH IT Partners with Year Up Boston

The HSPH Department of Information Technology in collaboration with the Office of Human Resources is pleased to announce a new partnership with Year Up Boston. In February, HSPH will welcome a new user support assistant to our User Services group for a six month internship. 

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.

Deane Eastwood, Assistant IT Director; Cesar Mieses, Human Resources Officer, Office of Human Resources; and Raina Gaurishankar, Employment Manager, Office of Human Resources, recently visited the Year Up Office on Summer Street and were extremely impressed with both the program’s curriculum and successes.

We will post further information to this blog once the program launches in 2010.
