Technology diversity nonprofit NPower opens permanent Detroit space

NPower, a nonprofit aiming to increase diversity within the technology industry, opened a permanent educational space Wednesday in Detroit.

The organization offers veterans and youth from underserved communities a free, six-month training in preparation for jobs in the tech field. The training is meant to create a diverse talent pipeline to fill the growing need for entry-level IT workers. 

NPower's new Detroit location is in Bedrock-owned Lothrop Landing in New Center. The new space has two classrooms and multiple conference rooms and study spaces for participants.
