Serving young adults, veterans and veteran spouses

Upskilling veterans and youth to build a tech talent pipeline

In a 2017 Bloomberg report, New Jersey ranked as the 4th 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.

Learning the Fundamentals of IT?

Our Tech Fundamentals program is your entry point to a tech-based career. In as little as 23 weeks you will master the basics of IT with real-world application and credentials.
