Fred Krug works with the organization “Year Up”, here in our Puget Sound area.

There are 2 locations–Seattle and Bellevue, each with 80 slots for new students, and enrollment is open for the new term starting in September.

The Puget Sound has had 6 successful years of young people finding success in work and in life. www.yearup.org
