What is Virginia STAR?
Virginia STAR is a state-wide Student Training and Refurbishment program that teaches students to refurbish surplus computer hardware. The refurbished computers are then donated to families, organizations and school districts. Through participation in the program, students work towards earning industry-standard certifications which can pave the way for both higher education and well-paying jobs.
FCPS VA STAR Clubs
The Foundation for FCPS is the Fairfax County coordinator for VA STAR and we support clubs in 7 FCPS middle and high schools. Not only do students earn IT repair certifications, they are also practicing altruism through donation of the refurbished computer equipment. Several clubs host donation celebrations where the students show the new owners how to use their equipment.
