A YEAR UP How a Pioneering Program Teaches Young Adults Real Skills for Real Jobs with Real Success

by | Read by Lloyd James

Contemporary Culture • 14.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

Chertavian’s account of his life and how he came to create the program Year Up finds a great delivery in the voice of Lloyd James. His inflection balances the demands of background information and emotional content through emphasis and pacing. Chertavian explores the hows and whys of Year Up from an idea to a fully functioning brand organization in cities across the country and the ways it continues to help youth achieve success outside of standard systems of training and education. Whether Chertavian is reflecting on the successes and failures of the program, the individual students, or himself, James captures the tone and emotion well without overdoing it. He keeps enough distance to avoid indulgence but still elicits the poignancy of the moment. L.E. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2012]
