About

CORE's mission is to help low-income adults acquire the technological and life skills they need to pursue their career aspirations.Classes available (and volunteers needed) in Reston, Herndon, Sterling and Loudoun.

We are looking for people who can teach basic computer skills plus MS Office and career skills. Classes are held in the evening starting mid-January.

We are training volunteers for our August semester. Your next step will be to attend a volunteer training session. Attendance at an orientation session is a mandatory step for classroom volunteers. It’s a great opportunity to learn more about the history of our organization, the students we serve, our curriculum, computer resources and the support we offer..
