Year Up provides empowering services to low-income young adults to help them learn and develop their professional skills. After only one year, students are ready to enter the professional workplace after being exposed to Year Up's academic and professional programs. After developing their technical skills in the classroom, young adults gain practical, hands-on experience at an internship at one of Year Up's corporate partners. DRhas worked with Year Up many times before, and knew what kind of candidate was needed for the position at Year Up Chicago. The next Director of Development would not only need an intimate knowledge of Chicago and its philanthropic environment, but would also have to effectively communicate how donors' dollars will directly impact youth adults who strive for success and whose motivations are insatiable. We knew that Rachel and Year Up Chicago was a match that could not be bested. Her father was a pastor, and Rachel has recognized the importance of service to others since she was a child. After serving in multiple development positions throughout Chicago, constantly raising revenues and expanding donor bases, Rachel served as the Director of Philanthropy at Youth Outreach Services, a Chicago non-profit that works with teens and young adults to promote healthy and safe living habits. DRknew that Rachel had a thorough understanding of the challenges and obstacles that young adults can face, and that she could use her increased understanding to convince donors of the need to give youth all the support possible. A native of Chicago, Rachel received her Bachelor's from St. Olaf College and her Master's of Divinity from the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago. We congratulate Rachel and Year Up Chicago and look forward to hearing all of their accomplishments from the Midwest."
