Wyoming Rural Ecommerce and Telework Support Project


To enhance 21st century workforce development for Wyoming residents this exciting new public service project will provide information on rural ecommerce and telework networking and training opportunities. Wyoming residents (with emphasis to residents that reside in Park, Big Horn, Washakie, Hot Springs and Fremont counties) who would like to work from home utilizing their computer and high speed internet access will be the primary beneficiaries of the project.   It is expected that a variety of special emphasis groups will also benefit from the project including veterans, handicapped individuals, senior citizens, Wind River Indian Reservation tribal members, high risk youth, entrepreneurial-minded youth and unemployed women with children.  


There are two primary elements to the project. The first is the development of a credible and comprehensive rural ecommerce and telework support website.  The website will provide links to Wyoming educational institutions that offer ecommerce training, other tested Internet training opportunities, Wyoming ecommerce success stories (like Eleutian Technology, LLC), business and community links, at-home job opportunities, special emphasis group links, an ecommerce networking calendar and other types of information to help bring Wyoming residents to the forefront of 21st century economic and technologic opportunities.   


The projectís second element will be community awareness presentations showcasing the Wyoming Ecommerce Support website within the five counties of the Big Horn Basin Resource Conservation and Development (RC&D) area.  Presentations in Cody, Lovell, Burlington, Greybull, Worland, Thermopolis, Riverton, Fort Washakie and Dubois are planned.  If these community presentations are determined successful, other community presentations in other parts of Wyoming will be planned.  


Initial financing for the Wyoming Ecommerce Support project is anticipated from a grant from the USDA Rural Development agency and potentially other sources.


Partnering entities in the new ecommerce support project to date include USDA Rural Development, Northwest Community College, the Big Horn Basin Resource Conservation and Development (RC&D) Council, Lone-Eagles Consulting, Inc., Wildlife Creations Inc. and Hot Springs Greater Learning Foundation.  We are looking for additional partners from other rural states and RCD's interesting in gathering and sharing rural ecommerce and telework success stories!


For additional information - or if you would you like to become a partnering or advertising entity - please contact Big Horn Basin RC&D Council Coordinator Eric Decker in Worland at 307-347-3946 or by email at eric.decker@wy.usda.gov
