Bringing Online Work Opportunities to Military Families

Commitment by

oDesk, Blue Star Families

In 2012, oDesk and Blue Star Families committed to bring economic and professional opportunity to military families through online work. The families of US servicemen and women make many sacrifices for their country; and among them is reduced access to economic opportunities due to their frequent relocation or deployment abroad. oDesk will provide 100 military families with access to its online work platform which allows businesses to remotely contract with skilled workers. Blue Star Families will provide its members with training and support for online work, as well as bring job opportunities to the members through its relationships with corporations, NGOs and federal, state, and local governments.
