WEST UNION – Connect Ohio is opening its newest Digital Works location in partnership with Adams and Brown Community Action Partnership (ABCAP) in West Union, located inside the Senior Center building located at 11 West Main Street. Digital Works is a technology skills training program aimed at providing a link between twenty-first century workforce opportunities and community revitalization. The program provides mentoring and training to workers seeking employment and places them in quality teleworking jobs. Digital Works West Union is holding orientation sessions every Monday at 2 p.m. starting April 7.

“Job creation is our top priority in Adams County. After months of planning and negotiations, we are pleased that the hard work of so many people and organizations within local government has come to fruition,” according to a joint statement issued by Adams County Commissioners. “The job training and skills that Digital Works provides will enable people to earn a decent living wage and be prepared for the jobs of the 21st century. We will continue to be a tireless advocate for this job creation program and we welcome Digital Works to Adams County.”

Using a digital learning model, the Digital Works program trains, places, and mentors high-quality business process candidates and locates co-working centers in rural America settings where job demand is high, few employers exist, and the cost of living is the lowest. Upon successful completion of training, trainees are placed in a position that matches their skills and interest. Participants can choose to do additional training and mentoring for more advanced career paths including web content writing, computer programming, or dedicated service lines. Structuring partnerships in the local communities is the backbone of the Digital Works program and is providing the success to get people employed.

“ABCAP along with its OhioMeansJobs Center in Adams County is pleased to partner with the Adams County Commissioners, Connect Ohio, and the Digital Works program,” said Debora Plymail, director of OhioMeansJobs for Adams and Brown counties. “We have great hopes the Digital Works program will provide the skills needed to allow our residents to compete and be successful in the twenty-first century employment environment. It is our hope to be able to play a small part in bringing jobs that have been offshored back to our country and more importantly to Adams County. We look forward to a long and successful partnership.”
