NPower Jazz Dallas:

A Benefit Concert Building Tech Careers for U.S. Veterans

Location: Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center in Dallas, Texas

Hosted by: NPower, 7-Eleven and PepsiCo

Event Description

NPower, 7-Eleven, PepsiCo and the Greater North Texas Tech Community were proud to present Jazz Dallas on April 7, 2015. This benefit concert brought together a community of business leaders committed to improving the lives of our Dallas veterans. The event was a powerful evening celebrating NPower’s impact, acknowledging the outstanding support of its partners, and featuring the first public performance in Dallas by Grammy award–winning trumpeter Terence Blanchard. NPower Jazz Dallas was a great opportunity to contribute to the expansion of NPower’s programs in the greater Dallas area. There are more than 30,000 new U.S. Armed Forces veterans entering the job market each year. Nearly 1,400 veterans in the greater Dallas area are interested in benefiting from NPower’s free IT training program (Technology Service Corps), yet the current program only has capacity to serve about 100 veterans annually. This talent pool coupled with the demand for bright, disciplined people with a high tech skill set is a tremendous source for building new career opportunities.
