I began volunteering at Byte Back, Inc. through "Office Track," an intensive course designed for students to learn Microsoft Office Suite, including Quick Books. I love to learn, and enjoyed the applied teaching methods, "click, click" of the mouse, for example. At first, I swept floors, but then I was assigned the task of developing course codes for all classes - a challenge indeed. One thing led to another, and my final accomplishment was organizing and drafting content for the current course catalog, 2009-2010. I love Byte Back, Inc., and hope to get more things done for them!

Volunteering helped me get a job. I'm an entrepreneur working with friends to get a software startup off the ground. I needed a stream of income to cover expenses, so I was able to quickly find a job with a vocational school teaching adults Microsoft Office. I got hired after just a 15-minute interview, because I had already been volunteering with Byte Back for several months teaching adults the same skills. My teaching experience at Byte Back made the difference in the interview. Getting a job wasn't even the best part of teaching there. I thoroughly enjoyed working with my students at Byte Back because they were motivated and eager to learn. Even months after my students graduated, I still get emails from my students telling me how they're putting the skills they learned in class to good use at work. I highly recommend teaching at Byte Back to anyone who likes to teach.

I started volunteering about a month ago, teaching adults Microsoft Office for the Office Track program for Byte Back. I have degree in IT and was looking for something that I could keep my brain fresh while giving back to others and Byte Back was it for me. The students are willing to learn, they are fun to teach and it is such a rewarding feeling when your students praise you and want to learn and do not want to miss any sessions with you. This organization is probably one of the best organization I have been affiliated with. The programs they offer are current and relevant to todays job market and I feel certain that any student that completes their desired program will be a much better candidate for a position for a job than others who do not giving them the edge and experience they need in a competitive market that we have right now. I am proud to be a part of this organization!

I have been very blessed with opportunities in this country ever since I have moved to USA to work in the Information Technology field. I recently made DC my home and Byte back gives me an opportunity to give back to the community. Through byte back I can teach my community the same skills and experience that has made my life blessed. It gives me change to both meet and teach people in my new home town. It's fun and at the same time very fulfilling.

I've been volunteering for a couple years at ByteBack and I think they are by far the best community-based organization in DC in terms of really helping people to succeed by building their computer skills. These are job-related skills that all adults need and ByteBack helps students to improve their skills. Kudos to the staff and volunteers that keep this place running!

I am a full-time AmeriCorps volunteer working at Byte Back. I teach computer classes during the weekdays. Teaching at Byte Back is hands-down the most rewarding job I have ever had. This organization does great work and really empowers the individuals who take courses here. I recommend it for potential students and volunteers!
