A Better Approach to Job Training
Last month, Digital Inclusion Week took place across the country. As part of the effort to raise awareness, Stu Johnson, VP of Digital Works, explained to RFD-TV the importance of Digital Inclusion in rural areas – and how it can help provide jobs.
“Telework, remote work, and free-lance solo work are the fastest growing segment of the work force,” said Johnson. “There are virtually thousands of global employers looking for folks that have the aptitude and attitude to do this kind of work. All we do is bridge that gap.”
New Classes Offered

We just graduated another class at the Reeb Center in Columbus, Ohio!
It’s the 22nd class to go through the program there, and the brand new graduates were joined by two surprise guests–Digital Works VP Stu Johnson and Cystal Amesquita, a graduate of the previous class.

ICYMI: Training Remote Workers
in Rural New Mexico
It can be difficult to find a job in rural New Mexico. For people who want to stay in their community, remote work is now a viable option, but it requires a high speed internet connection.
Digital Works provides the support and training for the SoloWorks program in Cibola County. It’s not only helping families stay in the places they love, but it’s expanding the tax base for a remote area of the country.
