This rating was published 02/01/2021 and includes data from FY2019, the most recent 990 received at that time.

NPower creates pathways to 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, and this is expected to grow to 77% by 2020 in the U.S. Yet the job marketing is not keeping pace. Of the nearly 6 million jobs expected to require tech skills in the future, labor statistics project a candidate pool of only 3.2 million. NPower envisions a future where our domestic technology workforce is diverse, and clear pathways exist for all people regardless of ethnicity, gender, or socio-economic NPower currently operates in New York City, North Texas, the San Francisco Bay Area, Baltimore, Toronto, New Jersey, and St. Louis.
