Year Up Puget Sound is a one-year, intensive training program that provides low-income young adults, ages 18-24, with a combination of hands-on skill development, college credits, and corporate internships. We opened our doors in March 2011 and have been overwhelmed with the warm welcome and support from both corporate and community partners in the Puget Sound region. Over 15,000 young adults in the Puget Sound region do not have access to livable wage careers or higher education. Year Up students across the nation are proving that these young adults are capable of adding immediate value to local companies, and we look forward to closing the Opportunity Divide in this community.
