We believe the future of non-urban communities lies in remote work tied to the modern digital economy. Remote work presents an opportunity for small and midsize communities to pull outside revenue into the local economy and support local businesses. A key component to achieving this goal is having in-demand homegrown technical talent, which is where we come in.
We connect citizens to learning resources they can use to develop to their technical talent, and provide both in-person and online tutoring, mentorship and guidance to support this learning. We also provide paid software development apprenticeships to create an alternative pathway to employment and skills development.
The skills we foster have a very high multiplier for economic development and innovation and do not require students to leave and pursue economic opportunity elsewhere. Local businesses can now work with local residents for new websites, applications, and software solutions. Local teachers have the technical knowledge to pass down to their students in traditional educational institutions. Local governments and nonprofits can tap into local technical talent to increase transparency, efficiency, and availability. By creating a critical mass of technical talent in areas where it is currently lacking, we can raise the quality of life and create a more robust local economy.
If you believe that citizens in communities of all sizes should have access to quality, relevant, technical education, please consider supporting our mission financially via our Donate Page.
