After-School Academic Enrichment Program

Check out this fun #STEM activity for our after-school academic enrichment program, courtesy of Sterling Library. Volunteer Patricia Pacheco helps our kids use Scratch-based language to create simple programs to move the mBots in different ways.  (mBot is a STEM education robot for beginners that makes teaching and learning robot programming simple and fun.) Thank you, Sterling Library for being a faithful and dynamic community partner!

Thank you Association of Corporate Counsel

A BIG thank you to the Association of Corporate Counsel for inviting INMED’s Opportunity Center to participate in its annual Nonprofit Fair as part of its Career Development Forum’s first program in 2019. It’s our third time! We greatly appreciate this community partnership with ACC and look forward to participating in more events together. Special thanks to event sponsor Major, Lindsay, and Africa, event organizers Susan Borke, Cindy Boyle and Frost Telegadas and Opportunity Center Trustee Steve Tibbets for turning out to support INMED!

Dulles Chamber’s Sterling Steering Committee

The INMED Opportunity Center was pleased to host the monthly meeting of the Dulles Chamber’s Sterling Steering Committee last Friday. Led by Queenb Creative’s Laura Poindexter, the group seeks to strengthen the Sterling business network as well as foster community partnerships with Sterling nonprofits. Supervisor Suzanne Volpe (Algonkian District) joined the meeting to share projects and business developments impacting the Sterling community. Former Opportunity Center program participant Nery Hernandez, owner of @NerysPupuseria in Purcellville, catered a delicious spread for lunch. Thank you to everyone who attended the meeting. We’re excited to be part of the team!
