"Year Up" office in Crystal City closed?

Work near the location where this non-profit opened and noticed a distinct decline in the peace and quiet of the courtyard it shared with other office buildings.

Organization helps "urban youth" in job seeking. Used to enjoy sitting out there in the courtyard but the clients of Year Up spoiled it. Use your imagination.

Noticed the entrance is papered up today and no one's in there. PCs and furniture are still in place, though.

Anyone know if they lost the lease or something else happened so that they are leaving?

Back to business as usual today.

Urban youts have all the shady seats in the 1801 Bell St. courtyard locked up. Not sure why there was a lapse in the program.

Don't know what they are telling them about job searching, but I hope they're making it clear that 3 foot long dreads on the boys will significantly affect their chances of being hired.
