Now Partnered with Rural Online Initiative!

PorchLight is thrilled to announce a partnership with the Rural Online Initiative (ROI) through Utah State Extension. This program’s focus is to invest in the rural workforce. Through two separate certification courses, Remote Work Professional and Remote Work Leader, individuals can learn if remote work is an employment option for them. The ROI program is so successful, that it is offered in other rural states through their extension offices to help the rural worker nationwide.


“We are excited to partner with the Rural Online Initiative, helping 9 rural states residents become better employees and leaders. By providing support through our job board and direct recruiting services, we are connecting the rural workforce to employment opportunities. I look forward to the spring when we can work directly with communities in these partner states through our PorchLight Certification program” CEO Jessica Meyers
