Can I still join UpGlo's Online Program if I live in New York, San Francisco Bay Area, Chicago, Detroit, or D.C. area?

Yes, however, our fully Online Program is intended for job seekers living outside our local metro areas. The UpGlo Online team consists of a small staff and thus can only offer only limited one-on-one support.  If you live in our locations, you can still view all of our trainings online and can also join our local training programs where you will receive one-on-one support, have access to a robust network of volunteers and employers, and attend networking and mock interview events.
