Would you like to go to Google School? Well Google (GOOG, GOOGL) has just announced a five-year, $1B job training and education program that involves a few different projects.
The Grow with Google initiative, or Google School as it is being called by some, will work with U.S. communities to provide job skills and small business growth advice.
The Goodwill Digital Career Accelerator will receive $10M in funding from Google to train 1.2M people in digital skills and career opportunities over three years. The company will also provide $1B in grants to global nonprofits. The money, distributed over five years, will go towards organizations working on “three key areas” Google thinks will “boost opportunity.”
Will you grow with Google?
