Mentor a young adult from an underserved community or a military veteran, and change the trajectory of their life in as little as 30 minutes a week.

This is a great opportunity to help to change the trajectory of a trainee’s life by being a trusted advisor to share insight on navigating the workplace culture, share professional, leadership experience, support in identifying career goals, and boosting their confidence.

You have an opportunity to make a lasting impact on NPower mentees, while developing your own
leadership skills.

We currently have hundreds of NPower trainees that are hoping to be matched with a mentor as they transition later this spring to launch their careers in tech.

Join the NPowerMATCH program to get matched with a mentee and make a difference today!

Previous mentoring experience is not required.

About NPower

Mission Statement

NPower creates pathways to economic prosperity by launching digital careers for military veterans and young adults from under-represented communities.

Description

We focus on two populations that experience barriers to employment - low-income veterans and young adults (ages 18-26) - and give them the support, skills, and industry-recognized certification needed to fill in-demand tech jobs. We offer our program free of charge to those who need us most - men and women earning less than 200% of the federal poverty level - and they primarily come from racial and socioeconomic backgrounds underrepresented in the tech industry. Our work addresses some of the biggest challenges of our times: racial inequities in access to education and opportunity, rampant unemployment, and lack of diversity in the tech workforce.

Founded in 2000, NPower has grown to operate in various markets across the country: New York, New Jersey, Maryland, North Carolina, Ohio, Michigan, Missouri, Texas, and California.
