At NPower Canada, a charitable organization established in 2014, we are on a mission to help as many young people as we can by providing them with the technical and soft skills they need to secure employment in the technology field, often lifting themselves and their families out of poverty.
We provide an all-encompassing program that teaches in-demand technical and soft skills as identified by our employment partners from banks to startups.
We take our program - and our youth - to the next level by including one-on-one and group coaching that builds business communication and customer-facing skills as well as addresses mental health and other societal obstacles that may impede completing certification.
Our goal is to connect at least 80% of our program graduates to new and rewarding career opportunities with some of Canadaâ€™s largest employers, supporting all of our alumni with ongoing mentorship and placement support for five years after they complete our program.
Our unique approach to workforce development has seen 1,398 youth graduate from our programs in the last 5 years. In addition to growing our current capacity, we are scaling our model to include alumni training programs through a $2.
5 million grant from Google.org and a new reskilling program. To support our growth within the GTA, in Calgary and soon in Halifax and Vancouver, we are adding passionate, collaborative, motivated, and compassionate team members to our offices.
