"Beginning New Heights of Service"
Since 1998, Neighbors Empowering Youth (NEY), Incorporated has implemented technology service programs impacting numerous lives. The 2014-2015 NEY Program will focus on launching the EDGE project: (Educated, Dedicated, Gifted and Empowered) offering a balance of academic support, technology enrichment classes, project-based learning programs, community service events and activities, college scholarship and internship opportunities. It’s a recipe for successful workplace readiness and preparation for future achievement! Our computer repair, graphics design and robotics programs are designed around project-based learning and stress the importance of team-building, leadership skills, community projects and creative expression. By stimulating both their creative and critical thinking skills, the EDGE program helps students discover their passion for technology and places them on a college-bound track. Neighbors Empowering Youth and its collaborating partners will have an opportunity to address community needs with programs in five target areas:
1. Educational Enrichment .
2. Workforce Readiness.
3. Internet Safety & Awareness.
4. Community Ownership & Service.
5. Entrepreneur Training.
Neighbors Empowering Youth will expand its community presence as a result of these initiatives.
Neighbors Empowering Youth (NEY) is a non-profit organization based in Altadena, CA. Our organization addresses the problems of juvenile delinquency and high school dropouts through our unique Computer Technology Center that empowers under-served youth, by giving them the academic skills they need to succeed in school and marketable skills to be successful in life. This training and mentoring is raising the self-esteem of many who were at risk of falling behind, and both encouraging and equipping them to dream realistically bigger dreams for themselves..
