San Francisco Bay Area
Our office at the College of San Mateo is at the center of the exciting West Coast tech scene. With The Community Corps and our veterans and Technology Service Corps, NPower San Francisco is poised to make a real impact in the community.
Technology Service Program: Veterans
Nearly 600,000 veterans are unemployed nationally, and with an estimated 30,000 service members, including the Guard and Reserves, leaving the military each year over the next five years, that number is expected to rise. NPower is committed to building brighter futures for military veterans by providing access and opportunity to tech skills to help them achieve their potential.
We provide free technology and professional skills training. We offer mentoring from business leaders, paid apprenticeships and career development workshops at leading corporations and nonprofits, industry-recognized certifications as well as employment and alumni services. More than 80% of our alumni are employed or pursuing higher education within one year of graduation.
Veterans in our student program participate in an extensive 20-week program that includes detailed classroom work, professional mentoring, internship and job placement support.
- Successful applicants must be individuals serving in the military, honorably discharged and over 21 years old
- Graduates are required to successfully complete all course work, including a seven week apprenticeship
