NPower program in N.S. helping youth find their technological edge

NPower Canada is launching two free programs to help young Edmontonians facing barriers to employment secure careers in tech.

A charitable organization that provides underprivileged, diverse youth in the community with free, in-demand digital and professional skills training and connects them to career opportunities with some of Canada’s largest employers is set to start its second class in Halifax.

“For our program, you don’t have to have any tech background to be successful. You just have to have the motivation to learn and some interest in IT is always helpful,” said Tyler Sweeney, the program manager for the Nova Scotia branch of NPower.
