Year Up National Capital Region (“Year Up NCR”), is a year-long workforce development program for low-income young adults.

In 2018, Deltek welcomed its 50th intern to the program. Upon completion of the program, many interns accept full-time jobs with Deltek.
The Peter Kuchli Urban Empowerment Award is presented to leaders who share Year Up’s values and vision and who are making a strong and measurable impact on urban young adults.

“I’m extremely proud to be receiving the 2018 Urban Empowerment Award. This honor reflects Deltek’s commitment to an organization that provides our company with a talent-ready source of skilled individuals needed to compete in today’s high-tech environment. We look forward to not only continuing our collaboration with Year Up NCR, but also with the goal of encouraging other companies to commit roles for Interns so they too can realize the significant impact Year Up can provide their businesses,” said Ed Hutner, Senior Vice President of Human Resources at Deltek.
