America may still be the “land of opportunity,” but the sad truth is, there is an opportunity gap that keeps millions of young people from ever advancing beyond the bottom of the job ladder.

A number of years ago, when he was a Wall Street banker, and a Big Brother volunteer, Gerald Chertavian saw firsthand how hard it is for many young Americans to get the same kind of career breaks he took for granted.

At the same time, he realized that American businesses were starving for good skilled workers.

Chertavian was inspired, and the result was the organization he founded, “Year Up,” dedicated to lifting young, disadvantaged, yet motivated workers.

Now he shows, in a new book called “A Year Up,” how his program works – and why its principles may be essential to America’s continued success.
