What is Teleworks USA?

Global text area

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.

Prospective teleworkers can access a range of services at one of Teleworks USA’s eight Hubs in Annville, Beattyville, Booneville, Harlan, Hazard, Hyden, Louisa, and Pikeville. Those services can include 72 hours of intensive and customizable online curriculum that result in several industry-recognized certifications designed to help jobseekers prepare for and land open telework positions.

As a division of EKCEP, Teleworks USA’s eligible clients also have access to a stable of workforce and career services as under the federal Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA).

Teleworks USA has also forged active partnerships with multiple global telework employers in an effort to develop new job opportunities for Eastern Kentucky’s remote workforce, and our management staff is continually looking to form new relationships.
