NPower (non-profit)

Launching Tech Careers. Transforming Lives.

Brooklyn, NY   |  www.npower.org

Mission

NPower creates pathways to economic prosperity by launching digital careers for military veterans and young adults from underserved communities. In today’s economy, over 50% of all jobs require some degree of technology and digital skill. Yet the job market is not keeping pace. A recent Microsoft Data Science report estimates that digital job capacity—or the total number of new technology-oriented jobs—in the U.S. will grow to 13 million by 2025. NPower currently operates in New York, Texas, California, Maryland, Toronto, New Jersey, Missouri, and Michigan.

Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Problem #1 - Lack of Access: There are too few young adults from underserved communities and veterans have the skills or access to launch successful careers in the digital economy, limiting their opportunity to participate in the workforce and build a strong financial future. Problem #2 - The Skills Gap: There is an inadequate domestic pipeline of skilled, diverse employees prepared to meet the demands of the digital labor market.
