Mission Statement

Tech Impact helps nonprofits improve efficiency by leveraging technology for their mission. Tech Impact was originally founded in 2002 as NPower Pennsylvania, part of the national NPower network. The network was founded with the help of Microsoft in 1998 to address the lack of affordable technology resources available to nonprofits. The network disbanded in 2012 and we changed our name to reflect the shift. Over the last decade, Tech Impact has provided affordable technology services and training to over 730 nonprofits in the greater Philadelphia region, allowing them to serve more of our region's neediest individuals. The organizations that Tech Impact serves, in turn, serve varied populations and geographies; the majority of these (80%) are defined as low income according to federal standards.   Tech Impact's services are available to all 501(c)(3) charitable organizations.

Board Leadership Practices (GuideStar Exchange,

?

GuideStar worked with BoardSource, the national leader in nonprofit board leadership and governance, to create this section, which enables organizations and donors to transparently share information about essential board leadership practices.

Board Orientation & Education ?
Why does this matter? Without clarity around their responsibilities and expectations, board members are not positioned to succeed. They may find themselves challenged to fulfill their governance responsibilities or frustrated by the expectations that the organization has set for them. BoardSource recommends that every new board member participate in a formal orientation process, and that all board members sign a pledge or agreement committing to their board service and to all of the responsibilities and expectations that come with service. Ideally, board members also should participate in a formal governance training program prior to serving on a board.

Does the board conduct a formal orientation for new board members and require all board members to sign a written agreement regarding their roles, responsibilities, and expectations?
Response Not Provided
CEO Oversight ?
Why does this matter? Oversight and management of the chief executive is one of the board’s most important legal responsibilities. The CEO or executive director is the board's single employee, and - just like any other employer/employee relationship - regular and written assessment is critical to ensuring that the chief executive and board are communicating openly about goals and performance. BoardSource recommends that boards conduct formal, written reviews of their chief executives on an annual basis, which should include an in-person discussion with the chief executive and distribution of the written evaluation to the full board.

Has the board conducted a formal, written assessment of the chief executive within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Ethics & Transparency ?
Why does this matter? A commitment to handling conflicts of interests is essential to creating an organizational culture of transparency. Boards should create and follow a policy for identifying and handling conflicts of interest, whether real or perceived. BoardSource recommends that organizations review the conflict-of-interest statement and require signed disclosures from all board members and senior staff on an annual basis.

Have the board and senior staff reviewed the conflict-of-interest policy and completed and signed disclosure statements within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Board Composition ?
Why does this matter? The best boards are composed of individuals who bring a variety of skills, perspectives, backgrounds, and resources to tackle the complex and strategic challenges confronting their organizations. BoardSource recommends that boards commit to diversity and inclusion by establishing written policies and practices, which include strategic and intentional recruitment of diverse board members, continual commitment to inclusivity, and equal access to board leadership opportunities.

Does the board ensure an inclusive board member recruitment process that results in diversity of thought and leadership?
Response Not Provided
Board Performance ?
Why does this matter? Boards need to regularly assess their own performance. Doing so ensures that they are being intentional about how they govern their organization, which is a critical component of effective board leadership. BoardSource recommends that a board conduct a self-assessment of its performance a minimum of once every three years to ensure that it is staying on track with its roles and responsibilities.

Has the board conducted a formal, written self-assessment of its performance within the past three years?

Program Description:

ITWorks is a free, 16-week technology program which targets urban youth, 18-25, who have graduated high school, or completed their GED, but who have not moved on to college.  There is a documented 72% unemployment rate among this demographic and they survive on an average yearly salary of $11,300. The vast majority of these individuals are African American and Latino. Research shows that each student, prior to the program, has an immediate taxpayer burden of $13,900 per year and an immediate social cost of $37,450.    An estimated 72,000 Philadelphians meet these criteria.Over 16 weeks, ITWorks students earn at least one industry-standard certification (75% earn two), receive weekly professional skills training delivered by corporate volunteers, and are placed into 5-week tech-related internships at area corporations and nonprofits.  Historically, 75% of our graduates are working in IT related positions within 7 months of graduation.

Program Long-Term Success:

ITWorks' successes and measurable results to date are as follows*:46 unemployed students enrolled, all designated "at risk," having received at least a GED, but not going on to college and under/unemployed. The program retains 90% of all students that enter and receives at least five times as many applications as openings.  100% of graduates receive the Cisco IT Essentials Certification and are placed in internships. 60%+ of graduates receive the CompTIA A+ Professional Certification 75%+ of graduates move into full time employment in the field within 7 months. Each student receives corporate-class career guidance, interview training, and connections to dozens of possible employers.  In the past year, 23 of the ITWorks graduates are now working full time with an average hourly pay of $15** 3 students went on to college full time (which we also view as a success)*These results encompass three classes from spring 2011 through spring 2012. **These results do not include full employment data for the most recently graduating class.

Program Description:

NPower Delaware’s PC Donation Program pairs computers donated by our corporate partners, like Independence Blue Cross, with refurbishing services from ING DIRECT/Capital One's team of technology volunteers. Since spring 2011, nearly 800 PCs have been distributed free of charge to over 50 nonprofits throughout Delaware and the Greater Philadelphia region.  In fiscal year 2012, ING DIRECT/Capital One’s volunteers provided 146 total volunteer hours to this program.The donated PCs are put to good use inside nonprofits and directly in programs which reach hundreds or thousands of individuals in our community.  Some of the receiving nonprofits are able to offer new services, such as a youth computer training program or a new senior citizens’ computer lab. Sometimes, the donated PCs replace staff computers that are 8-10 yearsold and are incompatible with current software. The Latin American Community Center (LACC) received 20 donated PCs through this program.  LACC’s after school enrichment program offers Computer Technology, which teaches young people, ages 13 to 17, how to disassemble and re-assemble PC’s, and install operating system and other software.  Participants are then given the completed computers to take home.  This program helps to stimulate their interest in technology and can improve their home learning environment.  Children & Families First (CCF) works to support teens and young adults through a variety of programs, including Seaford House, a residential and day treatment center for teens ages 12 to 17 who have emotional problems.  CCF decided that installing PCs in the residents' lounge would provide an activity which would help to reduce the stress and tension.  CCF received five desktop PCs through the PC Donation Program.   Don Loden, Seaford House Program Manager, reported that "The PCs are installed with educational and recreational software and promote relaxation and a heightened sense of well-being. Needless to say theyare a hit with the children!"NPower’s participation in the Microsoft Registered Refurbisher Program also allows eligible charitable organizations to purchase Windows 7 and MS Office 2007 licenses at a special price of $6/license.

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit

NPower Pennsylvania’s mission is to ensure all nonprofits can use technology to better serve communities.NPower PA is a unique nonprofit. By serving the nonprofit organization directly, NPower PA ensures its staff members have the technology tools they need to do their jobs, accurately track their outcomes, raise money, and succeed in the organization’s mission.NPower PA fundraises to bring the cost of technology down and, in some cases (with support from Foundations and Corporations), our support is provided for free.This is no small thing. In the nonprofit world, technology is sometimes relegated to the “optional” category of an organization’s budget. Nonprofits would rather use their limited funds, for example, to serve more people in need than pay for new technology. This is an understandable compromise, but one that ultimately weakens the nonprofit organization.ITWorks is a program of NPower PA and supports its mission by providing a flow of well-trained technologists to its nonprofit clients and corporate partners.  ITWorks seeks to address the gap in internship and job training opportunities for the 73,000 identified Out of School Youth (16–24 year olds who are neither in school nor employed) in the greater Philadelphia region. These individuals are at high risk for lifelongpoverty, commonly living on wages below $10,000 per year. ITWorks offers these individuals 16 weeks of training in Information Technology (IT) and then places graduates into internships in Philadelphia’s nonprofit, business and public sectors.Collectively NPower PA’s services impact entire communities, from the youth that live in them to the nonprofit organizations that serve them. NPower PA is working to enable positive change in our communities.
