Year Up is a one year job training and college credit program located in Belltown that serves 18 to 24 year old low-income youth who have a high school diploma or GED. Our organization began in Boston in 2000 and has now expanded to 9 sights in major cities across the country. Our Seattle office opened for its first class in March 2011. The program provides young adults with 6 months of college level courses around Business Communications, Information Technology and Professional Skills and 6 months of internship experience with our corporate partners such as: Google, REI and Children’s Hospital. During the entire program students are given a weekly stipend to help support living expenses and at the end they receive 18 hours of college credit, corporate experience and invaluable connections around the community. We are currently recruiting for our third class that will start in March. To apply please fill out a student interest form on our website www.yearup.org or contact us at 206-441-4465.
