CEO Discusses the Digital Works Celebration

Through The Years

It all started in Zanesville, Ohio, back in 2013. That’s when Connected Nation (CN) staff began evolving their digital literacy skills program into a targeted community revitalization and job growth program called Digital Works.

“Our nonprofit has always been focused on helping individuals and families access the internet and related technologies,” said Chris Pedersen, Vice President of Planning and Development, CN. “As we worked with more community leaders and began identifying the needs in both rural and urban areas, a trend started to emerge—there was not a program to increase job options in many of these areas. We knew that if we could provide digital training and job placement assistance for online positions it would help fill that need.”

The goal was to provide a workforce and economic development platform that could be tailored to everything from large, urban settings to small, rural towns or even statewide programs.
