Gerald Chertavian

Gerald Chertavian is one of the successful entrepreneurs in USA and proved himself not only an academic aficionado but churned out brilliant positive results at the place of his work. Gerald Chertavian never wanted his entrepreneurial skills should be his exclusive possession and yearned that low-income young students too should be given the taste of corporate success.

Vision of Gerald Chertavian:

He is a visionary with a lofty ideal that underprivileged young adults should be exposed to equal chance of learning to become victorious business persons. Gerald Chertavian began in 2000, a one-year intensive educational and training course, called Year-up, for young adults between the age range of 18-24 years, under the category of low-income group covering a wide scope of ethnic groups African Americans, Hispanics, pupils of other underprivileged classes. Annually, a batch of 2100 budding entrepreneurs emerges out of his Year-up. In this programme, students get training to acquire the relevant skills during the first six months and they would receive internship at more than top 250 companies. Students would have to choose from the five options of different streams: Financial Operations, Information Technology, Business Operations, Software Development, Sales and Customer Support. On completion of course, candidates would be ready to take up job responsibilities from the day one, since the curriculum is tailor-made to suit the requirements of companies, as anticipated by them.

In addition to being the founder of the non-profit organisation Year-up Inc., Gerald Chertavian serves as its Chief Executive Officer. At the onset of his career, Gerald worked as an officer in Chemical Banking Corporation and later became the head of marketing at Transnational Financial Services, London. In 1993, he co-founded the Conduit Communications. He ensured specifically that its revenues catapulted to 20 million dollars on his persistent efforts. He did B.A. in Economics, Phi Beta Kappa, summa cum laude, from Bowdoin College and an M.B.A. with honours from Harvard Business School. Gerald Chertavian earned honorary Doctorates from the Massachusetts School of Professional Psychology and Mount Ida College.

Mr.Chertavian’s serious hectic efforts were prominent in the Big Brother Mentoring Programme since 1985 and he was hailed as one of the New York’s outstanding Big Brothers in 1989. Gerald Chertavian received the Social Entrepreneurship Award for the year 2003 from the Manhattan Institute and also the Freedom House Archie R.Williams, Jr.Technology Award in 2005.

Gerald Chertavian continues to inspire budding aspirants for acquiring superior entrepreneurial skills, by setting an admirable example himself.

Inspirational Quotations From Gerald Chertavian:

  • “Mentors provide professional networks, outlets for frustration, college and career counseling, general life advice, and most importantly, an extra voice telling a student they are smart enough and capable enough to cross the stage at graduation and land their first paycheck from a career pathway job.”

  • “When we think about the workplace, people think about hard skills being dominant, but they're not. The employer realizes knowledge will shift quickly, and there's a half-life to knowledge in this world.”

  • “The ABC's are attitude, behavior and communication skills.”

  • “One can fall into the 'soft bigotry of low expectations.”

  • “You can learn what you want to learn through hard work. And a good employer will teach you what you want to learn as long as you show the right attitude and behaviors.”

  • “The saying in business is that, 'You hire for skills and you fire for behavior.' And one would argue that in order to move up in career, to be promoted, to take on additional responsibility, in many ways that's linked more to the attitudes and behaviors that you carry rather than what you know technically about a given subject.”

  • “The millennial generation and a growing number of employees are looking for more than just a paycheck. If a nonprofit could make that easy for me, they are doing me a favor. It's not just a one-way value exchange; it is an internal morale building opportunity.”

  • “At Year Up, our students - low income 18-24 year olds - come to us having already faced substantial obstacles in life. They are not in search of a handout; what they want most of all is the ability to take ownership of their own futures.”

  • “One can fall into the 'soft bigotry of low expectations.”

  • “Years ago, as I was beginning my professional career on Wall Street, I volunteered as a Big Brother in New York City.”

  • “You have, unfortunately, a K-12 educational system where the requirements to graduate are not the requirements to be college and career-ready. So if you want young adults who are college and career-ready, our K-12 system right now does not have that as its standard.”

  • “Year Up for me is a year in which the young adults that we serve have an opportunity to move up in their lives and gain the access and opportunity they need to realize their potential.”

  • “The Opportunity Divide doesn't just keep our students disconnected from the mainstream economy; it prevents our businesses from growing.”

  • “Many of our students say, 'We wish we had a mentor in high school. We wish we had someone we could spend more time with, who paid more attention to us, who I could sit down with and talk to when I had a problem.' So relationships are critical.”

  • “Many training programs and often schools focus on just a skill or a kind of work competency. That's only half the equation.”

Gerald Chertavian

  • “I've never been afraid to make a polite ask to someone.”

  • “College today is an expensive option without a lot of economies of scale, right, when you go and live at a college. So you have a system that's increasing its cost base by probably five percent a year.”

  • “Businesses are no longer receiving the cost savings from outsourcing that they once did.”

  • “Our young immigrants have a lot to offer. They are motivated and hard-working, and in many cases have already contributed significantly to our society - by excelling in school, by volunteering in their communities, or by serving in the military.”

Gerald Chertavian

  • “When it comes to expanding opportunity, businesses and young adults are not the sources of the problem - they are a substantial part of the solution.”

  • “At Year Up, we have helped thousands of students rise from poverty into a professional career in a single year.”

  • “I was taught very early on how you treat people is actually what matters.”

  • “As we say at Year Up all the time, investing in our young people is not just a matter of economic justice. It's good business sense.”
