NPower is a 501c3 nonprofit headquartered in Brooklyn, which mission is to create pathways to digital careers for youth from underserved communities and veterans across the US and Canada.  NPower’s award winning training programs use curriculum informed by senior industry leaders and labor market trends.  On average, NPower graduates 85% of enrolled students, places graduates in paid internships and has over an 80% rate of success for employment or continued education within 6 months of graduation. Notable corporate partners include Symantec, Cisco, Bank of America, Citi, CBS, JPMorgan Chase, and HP. Our annual gala, known as “the” tech fundraising event of the year, draws our largest donors and corporate supporters, as well as exceptional keynote speakers such as Michael Dell and Meg Whitman.

We address many of the primary barriers that our young adult and veteran communities confront. Beyond free technical classes, our career training programs provide in-demand certifications within weeks, paid internships, professional networking and mentorship with business leaders, soft skills coaching, connection to social services, job placement assistance, transit assistance and an opportunity for graduates to give back to the program via our professional volunteer network.  We provide ongoing career coaching, advanced certifications, and leadership development for our alumni, ensuring that we are developing true pathways for long-term success for our students.

Over the past decade, NPower has developed a robust network of Fortune 500 companies, mid-sized enterprises, government agencies, staffing firms, and a network of nonprofit partners which host our interns and hire our graduate’s fulltime.

Volunteerism is integral to the success of our programs. Our 10,000+ IT industry professional volunteers inspire the next generation of technology professionals by offering their time and knowledge to our students and to our non-profit partners.  Corporate volunteers regularly participate in NPower-organized Tech-Challenges benefitting NPower’s network of nonprofit employer partners by addressing their technology needs.
