Every Citizen Online All-Star Facility Award Presented to Elder High School tech-reach

By Lyndsey Kleven

Connect Ohio has named Elder High School tech-reach an Every Citizen Online (ECO) All-Star Facility. The ECO All-Star Facility award was presented to tech-reach by Connect Ohio Executive Director Stu Johnson during Connect Ohio’s quarterly Technology Association Meeting session held in Columbus January 25, 2013.

Connect Ohio ECO staff, including state operations managers and Johnson, choose the ECO All-Star Facility awardee based on meeting various program “hallmarks of excellence.” These include, but are not limited to, the number of adults taking ECO training at the facility’s locations, ECO program survey rate, creative promotional and community partnerships assisting in awareness and local success of the program, and the level of engagement of facility coordinators in the ECO program.

“By partnering with Connect Ohio, tech-reach has provided 120 hours of free instruction to more than 200 adult learners, most of whom continued their technical skills development in our more advanced courses,” said House. “Through collaborations with Connect Ohio and other organizations, tech-reach helped a total of 430 adults improve their employment prospects. Elder High School’s tech-reach program is honored to receive both program support and recognition of program excellence from Connect Ohio for training area adults in computer and Internet fundamentals.”

Tech-reach has been a partner in the ECO program since early 2012, and has gone above and beyond by building unique partnerships with community organizations to offer the training to a number of groups in need of this program. Partner organizations include:

·        Santa Maria Community Services

·        YWCA of Greater Cincinnati

·        Price Hill Financial Opportunity Center

·        Work Initiative Network, LifePoint Solutions

Congratulations tech-reach, keep up the great work!
