A Job Development Program for the Modern Worker
Developed by Connected Nation to meet the growing demand for online workers, Digital Works is a one-of-a-kind job-creation program that goes beyond training and placement to long-term career guidance and mentorship.
Stu Johnson, VP of Digital Works, gave us a quick overview of the program in the below video. Share this with others so we can spread the word about how Digital Works can help their families, communities, and states.
A Way Out of Poverty: How Digital Works is Helping Single Moms
Being a single mother can be tough. But according to the American Psychological Association, it’s even more difficult than you may think. That’s because households led by a single mom have a 31.6% poverty rate.
So, it’s important to give single mothers better options for supporting their families. For Tami Raber, Digital Works was the key to her success.
Raber is a single mother with a 17-year-old daughter living in Greensburg, Kansas. Greensburg is a small, rural farming town in central Kansas where, due to its size and location, there are limited jobs.
“Living in a rural area can be hard because there are not many job opportunities, unlike in a city,” said Raber. “Most of the jobs available here are either minimum wage or long and unusual hours." Learn how Digital Works helped her through our virtual classes.
