NEY, in the Community Making an Impact that Counts

Who We Serve

Closing the digital divide has been our objective since our establishment as a 501c3 nonprofit service organization in 2000. NEY has specialized in training: At-Risk Youth, Disabled persons, Immigrants, Seniors, Prison Re-entry and the Under-Employed.

 

NEY’s primary participants have been young adults 16 to 24 years old. Neighbors Empowering Youth(NEY) realized that to be effective in the community our focus needed to be on empowering “YOU”
