Scaling Up Symantec Cyber Career Connection (SC3)

Commitment by

NPower

In 2015, NPower in partnership with Symantec committed to expanding the scope and reach of Symantec Cyber Career Connection (SC3), a cybersecurity workforce development program that trains and certifies underserved youth in cybersecurity and assists them in securing meaningful internships and jobs in this field. Following a successful pilot in New York City in 2014, NPower will offer cybersecurity training to a second cohort of 15 underserved young adults (aged 18-25) in NYC and launch SC3 in Arlington, Texas, enrolling 15 veterans (aged 21-40) who are transitioning into the civilian workforce. NPower aims to graduate 80% or more of participants, and help 80% of graduates obtain jobs in cybersecurity within 12 months. By providing young adults and veterans with training in high-demand cybersecurity jobs, NPower and Symantec are putting them on a course for long-term career success, while helping to address the urgent need for trained professionals in this field.
