Every Citizen Online All-Star Facility Award Presented to Goodwill Industries of South Central Ohio

By Lyndsey Kleven

Connect Ohio has named Goodwill Industries of South Central Ohio an Every Citizen Online (ECO) All-Star Facility. The ECO All-Star Facility award was presented to Goodwill by Connect Ohio Executive Director Stu Johnson during Connect Ohio’s quarterly Technology Association Meeting session held in Columbus April 26, 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.

As partners in the Every Citizen Online program, Goodwill received 12 laptop computers which they use as part of a mobile computer lab. Goodwill holds training at 10 locations throughout the Appalachian Ohio region, covering 7 counties.

They have trained over 500 participants in rural areas where the training is vitally needed. Many of the participants have limited access to technology and Internet and come into the training with very limited computer experience. (Read more about Goodwill’s efforts on our blog)

Congratulations Goodwill Industries of South Central Ohio, keep up the great work!
