"Beginning New Heights of Service"
Since 1998, Neighbors Empowering Youth (NEY) a 501c3 service organization, has implemented technology service programs impacting numerous lives. To advance NEY's mission and goals to help our youth become more fluent in science, technology, engineering and math "STEM" subjects, NEY's After School Programs will focus on launching the EDGE project: (Educated, Dedicated, Gifted and Empowered) at its new satellite location, 2011 N. Lincoln Ave. Pasadena, CA. 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!
In partnership with Neighbors Acting Together Helping All (NATHA) Our Graphics Design, Robotics and Job Readiness 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 project 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 and support classroom instructions with real world application in an after school setting.
