our services


After graduation from Educaship Bootcamp, our fellows pursue two tracks:

  • Formal curriculum, which is defined in partnership with the college that would issue your credential;
  • On-the-job training, which is defined in partnership with your mentors.

Our introductory sessions in project management, IT, leadership, data analysis, and DevOps are also open to the general public at no charge.


If you are:

  1. A career service provider, you are welcome to explore our partnering products;
  2. An employer, please explore joining Friends of CNM;
  3. A professional, please consider becoming our volunteer;

Whomever you are, you can always support jobs for the vulnerable with your donations.


You will be hired as an apprentice immediately after your graduation from the bootcamp. You will be supported administratively, financially, legally, managerially, and technologically as long as you are in the program.

Traditionally, but not necessarily, you will work as a project manager, business analyst, Scrum master, product owner, and/or tech lead. Your work hours and rate increase as your capacity increase.

I had been in the US for 17 years, given birth to three children, and never been employed. When I discovered WorldOpp, I had no where else to go. The Fairfax County Employment Center's employees told me that I was not eligible for vocational training. At WorldOpp, I got partially-employed next month and fully-employed in nine. Now, I make more than $48,000 a year as an accountant and my career futures are bright.

who we are

We are Friends of CNM. In 2012, we started out as the tech skills training team of the Career Network Ministry. Later, we gradually moved to a network that includes legal entities called Corporate Friends, professionals called Expert Friends, and donors called Funding Friends. The purpose of this network is to support and enhance services of the Career Network Ministry.

Working on the WorldOpp programme, I feel like I am contributing to a really better world.

Valeria Malash


I love our tech team. Collaboration is the first advantage. I am always available to help and enjoy availability of someone else's help as well. Well-defined configuration management is the second advantage. And, most importantly, the constant discovery of new horizons is unparalleled.

I wanted to transition to the IT industry, but couldn't find any entry-level position. Then, I discovered WorldOpp. In 10 months, I secured a c-level position within Educaship Alliance LLC, a Virginia-based corporate friend of CNM.

use cases

High-school drop-out:

No GED is needed to get started with WorldOpp. Based on Educaship Bootcamp , we at Friends of CNM always assess what parts of knowledge, skills, and abilities you are missing in order to get employed as our apprentice. Our CMO-in-Training, Vaclav Jobs, started out of the middle school.

Partially-disabled person:

We welcome partially-disabled people! Based on Educaship Bootcamp, we at Friends of CNM always assess what type of employment fits your knowledge, skills, and abilities. Our past CTO, Chris P., periodically experiences crises, which are related to some mental disability. Now, he is gainfully teaching online.

50+ years-old laid-off worker:

Your age has no relevance for WorldOpp's admissions. Our past trainer, Diane J., was laid off after decades of her work for one particular employer. Now, she is a senior manager for one national association in the Washington, DC metro area.

A gift from God. I could never imagine that I would discover my new passion and turn it into my paychecks. After one career in the hospitality business, I have succeeded to launch another career in the IT one. This wouldn't be possible without WorldOpp. Thank you, guys at Friends of CNM!
