NPower Maryland named as one the 2020 Bank of America Neighborhood Builders awardees for Greater Maryland

NPower Maryland is honored to have been selected as one of Bank of America’s 2020 Neighborhood Builder awardees and recognized for their work in transforming the lives of Baltimore youth through tech. Through this award, NPower Maryland has received a generous grant, leadership training for staff, the connection to other organizations in the Neighborhood Builder family across the nation, and the opportunity to access capital to expand their impact. 

Having served more than 300 young people in the Baltimore region since 2016, NPower Maryland’s Tech Fundamentals program is a sustainable solution and pathway to prosperity providing internships, apprenticeships and job placements. “As we consider the current challenges to economic mobility and advancing digital equity, we know that this award will catalyze our efforts to train and launch careers in tech for more youth from under-resourced communities and support expansion to serve military veterans,” stated Kendra Parlock, Executive Director of NPower Maryland.

Thank you to Bank of America for recognizing NPower Maryland’s work and impact.
