Work Online Dominica's Second Round

Last week, IsraAID Dominica, the Ministry of Public Works and the Digital Economy, and UNDP launched the second Work Online Dominica program. We welcomed a new cohort of 60 people who will be part of our 12-week course on how to get started working online, find new sources of income, and increase financial stability. 

The COVID-19 pandemic has shown us how accessible the global economy can be, from anywhere in the world. 2020 increased the capabilities of many companies to hire and manage a remote workforce, opening job opportunities to people from different continents. With the right skills and training, some of the world's largest tech companies are accessible from the comfort of people's own homes. In a year that saw many people without a job, through our first round of Work Online Dominica, 55 young Dominicans found employment as freelancers or permanent staff with companies all over the world. 

Hear from Emily, a participant of our first round of Work Online Dominica:

"Work Online Dominica presents you with the master class of how to get started working online. Making available 12 comprehensive training modules, weekly group sessions, access to free skills training to help you build new skills or strengthen those you already have, and one-on-one coaching to tackle your personal challenges and polish your application, all with an exclusive community of like-minded individuals. You cannot get that level of value anywhere else. The trainers are truly experts when it comes to working online as freelancers or remote employees. I’ve always dreamt of working online, with the flexibility of choosing my working hours from the comfort of my own home. For over 10 months I’ve been employed by a US company. Working online takes discipline. You have to be self-motivated and confident. My experience is not unique, it resonates with every Work Online Dominica participant."
