Gerald Chertavian — a member of the Bowdoin Class of 1987 and trustee emeritus of the College — has been mentoring young people for most of his adult life. Today, his Boston-based company, Year Up, provides a one-year, intensive training program for urban young adults, all aimed at building opportunity. It’s “a matter of social justice,” he told The New York Times two years ago. Chertavian and Year Up are again in the news, this time on 60 Minutes. The segment, scheduled to air Sunday, January 26, 2014, also features American Express CEO Ken Chenault ’73. Watch a preview.
