Help Computer C.O.R.E raise $2,000 on Give to The Max Day!

This week, help Computer C.O.R.E. raise $2,000 on Give to the Max Day for books and course materials to help their motivated students find life-changing careers.

Finding a job in today's economy is hard enough. Now imagine that you don't know how to use a computer. You couldn't even apply for a position at Walmart, because its applications are all online.

Computer C.O.R.E. graduate Abdul Agermoune used to be a grocery runner, but thanks to the skills he learned in their job traning programs, he now works as a Marketing Research Manager at Congressional Federal Credit Union.  For Abdul, Computer C.O.R.E was a life changing experience.

Computer C.O.R.E. provides hope and opportunity to low-income adults in Northern Virginia by teaching basic computer skills and job readiness skills, including resume writing and interview protocol. And every student takes home a free refurbished computer to use for homework, job hunting, and staying connected to the community. For our students, these new skills mean that they can get better jobs and create a better life for their families. And by building the workforce, we're strengthening the community as well.
