For Communities

Digital Works is an exceptional opportunity for communities and companies seeking cost effective information technology and call center training and job placement. As local capacity builds, communities are able to leverage the workforce to recruit tech companies, not just traditional manufacturing facilities. Thousands of jobs are available to the underemployed and displaced rural workers leading to a shift of younger workers having an opportunity to earn a good living as part of a skilled workforce in their hometown. If you want to bring a Digital Works training center to your community, contact us.
