Thankful Thursday

INMED is thankful for our friends at the Rotary Club of Ashburn, VA for supporting and encouraging our programs at the Opportunity Center. We especially thank Club President Ken Courter of Keller Williams Realty for arranging for OC Executive Director Maria Vasquez to share our success stories from INMED Loudoun’s After-School, Healthy Families and Moms & Babies Programs. We could not transform the lives of at-risk children without the support of our local business community.

Computer CORE classes every Wednesday

Did you know that INMED’s Opportunity Center hosts Computer CORE classes every Wednesday evening from 6-9 pm? Computer CORE is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to teach low-income adults the technological and life skills needed to pursue their career aspirations. CORE’s six-month training course is designed to help students learn computer and internet basics. Instructors advise and mentor students to identify existing skills, nurture career interests, work together on individualized resumes and teach job search strategies. By the end of the course, students have the tools to achieve career success and are on the path to lifelong self-sufficiency.
