Non-profit launching youth into tech careers arrives in Kingston

NPower Canada, a charitable organization that aims to reduce poverty by addressing youth unemployment, has recently expanded its services to the Kingston area.

The organization’s mission is to connect youth with stable employment in jobs requiring digital skills that have sustainable future prospects. 

According to NPower Canada’s senior vice-president of programs and partnerships, Denisse Alejo, the non-profit equips youth for a wide range of tech jobs.

“Currently, we’ve placed youth in areas like technical support specialists, customer service specialists and field and installation technicians,” Alejo told the Whig-Standard
