New Jersey

NPower New Jersey is located at New Jersey City University, at the epicenter of the state's rapidly growing technology scene – Jersey City.

Develop the Tech Skills You Need

The most densely populated county in New Jersey, Hudson County is home to some of the most ethnically and linguistically diverse communities in the country. Despite a concentration of Fortune 500 companies in Jersey City's downtown, poverty and unemployment remains high within some pockets of the city and county. With nearly 40% of Jersey City residents being between the ages of 18 and 24, NPower is committed to training and preparing young adults for high quality jobs in the technology sector.

NPower's Tech Fundamentals program provides free technology and professional skills training.
We offer mentoring from business leaders, paid internships and career development workshops at leading corporations and nonprofits, industry-recognized certifications as well as employment and alumni services.
