Gerald Chertavian extrapolated from being a Big Brother by developing an internship program for minority, inner-city youth. Through socialization, training, and internships with corporate sponsors, Year Up demonstrates an innovative strategy for workforce training, which had come under review when conventional government training initiatives failed. Committed to documenting outcomes, Year Up embeds randomized controlled trials in organizational operations to continuously improve training. Another youth training initiative, Per Scholas, also integrates randomized trials in its operations.
