NPower New York

NPower New York is offered in Brooklyn and Harlem (Manhattan).


Develop the Tech Skills You Need

One in seven young adults aged 18 to 24 in the United States is out of work and not in school, with 350,000 unemployed in New York City. 250,000+ IT jobs are currently unfilled—and the need will grow by 20%+ by 2020. NPower trains young adults so that they can fill the 50% of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) jobs that don't require a four-year college degree. We're looking to close the diversity gap, although women comprise 48% of the workforce in the United States, only 24% of workers in STEM are women. Similarly, although African Americans and Hispanics comprise 25% of the workforce, they make up just 12% of STEM workers.

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.
