The Detroit metropolitan area is a hotbed for the technology sector growth as the labor pool transitions from their manufacturing history. Within the Detroit region, IT occupations grew by 12% and are expected to grow by another 4% by 2023 (Source: EMSI).
This results in a growing need for tech workers—especially junior, entry-level talent. With 17% of Detroit’s young adults unemployed and over 4,000 open tech jobs as of August 2019 (according to the Michigan Bureau of Labor Market Information and Strategic Initiatives), NPower aims to arm the youth of Detroit with the skills needed to fill the growing tech talent pipeline.
