Computer CORE's coronavirus response and information.
The safety and well-being of our students and volunteers are at the forefront of our priorities as an educational institution. Therefore, in response to COVID-19, all in-person Computer CORE classes, workshops and tutoring are suspended indefinitely until further notice beginning Friday, March 13. Online classes are continuing via Zoom.
Getting students online
- Volunteer instructors are responding in creative ways to provide distance learning to our students via Zoom, Teams, and Google Meet
- The CORE Flagship Program currently operates 25 online classes for 300+ students encompassing multiple iterations of Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook and SharePoint, Google Workspace, and career skill coaching – as well as advanced electives including basic coding, IT security, QuickBooks, and NVCC math placement
- Getting computers into the hands of students without technology at home is a critical component for students to continue their education – thanks to CORE’s dedicated volunteer refurbishment team, nearly 200 computers and laptops were distributed to students (with social distancing precautions in place)
- Computer CORE is a certified Microsoft Third Party Refurbisher
