Grow with Google, launched in 2017, is an initiative through which Google partners with libraries, schools, and other organizations to provide digital literacy workshops and one-on-one coaching. Google says it works with more than 7,000 partner organizations and has trained more than 4 million Americans.
The workshops — which focus on business skills, including job applications and resume building as well as marketing and management — are normally hosted in person by partner organizations. Google also holds sessions at Grow with Google’s learning center in New York City.
The COVID-19 pandemic has put in-person classes on pause, however, so the company is now offering free Grow with Google classes online. Anyone who attends a session can also register for a free one-on-one coaching session. Though they are virtual, the webinars are still organized in tandem with Google’s partners.
