Love of Reading

Reading has positive impacts on multiple levels. It reduces stress, engages the mind, increases vocabulary and brings new worlds of possibility within reach. Reading is a main component of our after-school academic enrichment program at our Opportunity Center.

Would you like to share your love of reading with a child who needs after-school assistance? Please contact INMED volunteer coordinator Yahaira Hanon at yhanon@inmed.org for details.

Youth Art Month

Did you know that March is Youth Art Month? To celebrate, we’ve created a new virtual art gallery on our Opportunity Center web site, courtesy of Potomac Falls High School’s talented art students: https://opportunitycenter.us/programs/art/. INMED is an official partner for displaying artwork created by students of Loudoun County Public Schools.

If you would like to admire the work in person at INMED’s Family & Youth Opportunity Center in Sterling, please contact Executive Director Cecilia Capece at ccapece@inmed.org to schedule a tour.

Dr. Vinton G. Cerf Visits Opportunity Center

Students in our after-school academic enrichment program received a gift they will never forget the other day. Dr. Vinton G. Cerf, Vice President at Google and widely known as the “Father of the Internet,” spent more than an hour observing the Center’s many educational activities provided for at-risk children. In one activity organized by Sterling Library, he helped students use binary coding to create personalized bracelets. He even made one for himself.

Dr. Cerf’s visit provided a major showcase of the many STEAM enrichment activities offered at the Opportunity Center. Learn more about how INMED is creating opportunities for at-risk children and families to thrive—and ways to get involved: https://opportunitycenter.us.
