I need a laptop to learn new skills and keep up with coursework!

I need a laptop, so I can keep up with the coursework. My goals are to increase my computer skills, so I can find work where I can make a decent wage.

My need and situation

I am 45-years-old, and I am currently at the Center for Changing Lives enrolled in their Business Support Services program, looking to get a job in an office so I can work full-time which I have not been able to do in about 20 years.

My goals are to increase my computer skills, so I can find work where I can make a decent wage.

I need a laptop, so I can keep up with the coursework.

Meeting this need will help me because I would be able to study, and remember what I learned in class. Right now the only place I have access to a computer is in class, so it is difficult to study outside of class.

Need funded!

Thank you for helping Chris fund this need.

I have been working with Chris for the past month. In that time he has been extremely dedicated to the program, also letting staff know what he needs to be successful. I know if he had a laptop, he would be better able to retain the material he is learning in class.
