An introduction to Year Up, an intensive, free, one-year program for low to moderate income young adults aimed at skill development is coming to White Center on July 10. According to organizers the program combines a supportive learning environment with hands-on skill development, 27 college credits, and internships and some of America's top companies.
Their materials say, " Students are well prepared for success in careers in IT and business communication, or to pursue higher education. 90% of Year Up graduates are employed or attending college full time within four months of graduation, and earn an average of $15 per hour or $30,000 per year.
The community gathering for Year UP is set for July 10, from 5:30 to 7pm at the Bethaday Community Learning Space (at Lakewook Park) 605 SW 108th Street.
