Community residents in Aroroy receive hands-on training in digital platforms and employment opportunities through the Digital Jobs Project. Filminera and Phil Gold, in partnership with the Department of Information and Communication Technology (DICT), converted a building into a community BPO training center for digital jobs skills such as virtual assistance, web development, search engine optimization, graphic design, e-commerce, online bookkeeping, among others.  After the technical training, students are taught how to search for their first job or customers. This initiative opens employment opportunities for stay-at-home mothers, out-of-school youths, and former small-scale miners.

A highly trained PWD is now earning more than US$2,000 a month as website content developer, while a farmer is earning US$1,000 a month as BPO manager specializing in Search Engine Optimization.
