Serving young adults, veterans and veteran spouses
In a 2019 Bloomberg report, New Jersey ranked as the 9th most innovative state in the country for its density of STEM research and development. The state also has a higher than average unemployment rate for older veterans and underserved youth between 16-24.
Our New Jersey program provides tuition-FREE technology training and certifications to veterans, veteran spouses and young adult job seekers, offering an alternative fast-track to tech jobs with employers committed to hiring diverse IT talent.
NPower has helped hundreds of students in Jersey City with its “Tech Fundamentals” course, mentoring and helping them find tech jobs after graduation. Because of the program’s success, it has now expanded to Newark, with the launch of our first class in September 2019.
