Technology Service Corps
1,000 AND COUNTING!
Our Technology Service Corps (TSC) program prepares participants to begin careers in the field of information technology by offering free technical classes, mentoring from business leaders, paid internships, career development workshops at leading corporations and nonprofits, industry-recognized certifications, job placement services and access to a robust alumni network. More than 80% of our alumni are employed or pursuing higher education within one year of graduation.
Our new office at New Jersey City University is at the epicenter of the state's rapidly growing technology scene – Jersey City. This office will serve as our home base as we grow our programs throughout the greater Hudson and Essex County region.
Young Adults Program
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.
Our second Jersey City Technology Service Corps program is scheduled to launch in July 2016. Young adults in our Jersey City Technology Service Corps program will participate in an intensive 22-week program that includes detailed classroom work, professional mentoring, internships, and job placement support.
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.
In July 2016, NPower New Jersey will provide free technology and professional skills training for Veterans. We will 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 22-week program that includes detailed classroom work, professional mentoring, internship and job placement support.
