It can be difficult to find a job in rural America. There are few brick-and-mortar opportunities for those who want to stay close to their families and provide for their children or themselves.
But, remote work is now a viable option for parents, young adults, retirees, veterans, and others living in remote areas across the U.S. thanks, in part, to the Digital Works (DW) program established by Connected Nation in 2013.
“My family, friends, and house are here. I want to stay home, that is very important to me,” said Sarah Peña, a recent graduate from Cibola County, New Mexico. “I’m so lucky to have found this program that allows me to work from home and provide for my family.”
