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..
To date we have awarded over 200 computers to students from Pasadena, John Muir, and Blair High Schools, Rose City Continuation School, Washington and Elliot Middle Schools, Willard, Franklin and McKinley Elementary Schools. We have established computer labs in faith and community based organizations and recently set up computer lab at Pasadena High school and another computer lab at Wilson Middle School.
