SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 16, 2002

Creative Tools, Training to Contribute to Worldwide

Network for Underserved Youth

Corel Corporation (NASDAQ:CORL)(TSX:COR) today announced that it has signed on to support one of the world's leading technology philanthropy programs, contributing creative software and training to Intel Computer Clubhouses worldwide.

Announced in conjunction with a tour stop in the company's Digitalism Tour, a cross-country tour by the world's first mobile art gallery and exhibition vehicle, Corel will supply the Intel Computer Clubhouse Network with creative software and training to support the Network's outreach programs around the world.

As part of its commitment to the Intel Computer Clubhouse Network, Corel will donate creative applications CorelDRAW(R)11, Bryce(R)5 and Painter(TM)7 to the 75 Intel Computer Clubhouses worldwide.

Corel has provided technical training in these applications to Intel Computer Clubhouse mentors and coordinators in several cities. Training and support for these products will be ongoing.

"Corel, through the training it is offering, has set a standard for what we hope software vendors can bring," said Gail Breslow, Director of the Intel Computer Clubhouse Network. "Our Clubhouses are all about engaging youth. With the software and particularly the training Corel offers our staff, we can facilitate a real connection between these great tools, the kids and their imaginations."

"Corel firmly believes in empowerment through expression. We are committed to going the extra mile to give youth the tools and the skills that can make a difference in their lives," said Steve Houck, executive vice president of strategic relations of Corel Corporation. "Our commitment to the Intel Computer Clubhouse Network offers opportunity and empowerment to the youth that need it most."

Founded in 1993 by The Computer Museum (now part of the Museum of Science, Boston) in collaboration with the MIT Media Lab, the Computer Clubhouse is both a physical place and a learning model, providing a safe, creative, after-school environment where young people from underserved communities work closely with adult mentors to explore their own ideas, develop skills and build confidence through the use of technology.

The Intel Computer Clubhouse flagship at the Museum of Science serves as the center of innovation and technical expertise for the Intel Computer Clubhouse Network worldwide. With the MIT Media Lab, the Museum provides technical assistance, support and programmatic guidance for Clubhouses around the world.
