We Make Remote Work Local

We’re a bunch of people who believe remote work is a powerful tool for community development. We’re mostly interested in rural areas and permanent (employed) remote work.

Who We Are

We’re a group of community people who started a WhatsApp group in 2018 when we were curious about remote work and how that could help our communities.

We grew into 4 countries, a CLG (Not for Profit) and have 60+ local chapter leads using remote work as a tool for community development.

What Chapters Do

Chapters are the most important part of Grow Remote as they help with the last mile of remote work. They usually use remote work to achieve one of these 3 goals…

Help their community find employment

This is a blended approach of raising awareness of the companies hiring remotely, and helping people get trained up. We’ve developed a schools pack and partnered with Workplaceless to start 110 certs in remote work.

Help repopulate their community

When employment is mobile, rural communties can compete on the things that matter. Our chapters developed Town Tasters, a way to help people explore what it’s like to live in their community.

Help remote workers engage locally

Remote workers can be our “hidden employed” and suffer from isolation. Some chapters focus on helping remote workers engage locally through events or meetups.

As a volunteer group, we're grateful to those who make this happen
