Virginia STAR program

Virginia STAR

Virginia Student Training and Refurbishment program (VA STAR) students refurbish surplus hardware from state agencies or private companies. Once refurbished, these computers are donated to families and organizations that need a computer. Students in the VA STAR program can earn IT repair certifications and skill sets that can develop into well-paying jobs. The program is administered through Prince William County Public schools and its SPARK Education Foundation.

VA STAR is providing $4,000 to initialize an after school program at Caroline High School and another $4,000 to initialize an after school program at Caroline Middle School. VA STAR is providing old computers for these programs.

After the first year, VA STAR is providing $2,000 annually for an after school program at Caroline High School and another $2,000 annually for an after school program at Caroline Middle School.

The after school program will begin in November and sign up forms will be available in the CHS and CMS main offices.
