TeleworksUSA

TeleworksUSA

Teleworks USA is an innovative program that is bringing cutting-edge telework (work-from-home) employment opportunities to jobseekers, especially those in rural areas and small towns, allowing them to participate in the global economy without relocating. Started as Kentucky Teleworks in 2011 by the Eastern Kentucky Concentrated Employment Program, Inc. (EKCEP) as a part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), Teleworks USA has created a virtual pipeline of employment to many communities, actively recruiting national and global companies to bring legitimate work-from-home jobs to people through a computer- and Internet-driven virtual workplace. Working in partnership with local government officials, utility and internet-service providers, the Appalachian Regional Commission, and U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Development, Teleworks USA has rapidly expanded its system of Hubs throughout Eastern Kentucky to better provide services to jobseekers and employers alike.
