NWCT Social Responsibility : Giving Back To Our Community and Promoting Technology


On Monday, November 14th the NWCT partnered with Temple University during a "speed mentoring" style event, with the objective of enlightening and empowering female students with information about the amazing variety of careers that focus on technology.  
Over 60 students participated and spoke with 30 professionals in the tech industry. The evening was a success!

 


Coming up: NWCT Annual Holiday Toy Drive

Once again we will be collecting unwrapped toys during our holiday event for the Support Center for Child Advocates. The Support Center for Child Advocates provides legal assistance and social service advocacy for abused and neglected children in Philadelphia County.
