We believe in leveling the playing field for everyone. The Internet is one of the world’s most powerful equalizers, and we see it as our job to make it available to as many people as possible.

– Sundar Pichai, Founders’ Letter 2016

We are always inspired to see what people do when they have access to technology. We know that people are changing the world through their own creativity and passion and that sometimes technology lends a hand. So we wanted to do our part to make sure that technology brings opportunity to everyone.

That is why we created Grow with Google.

Grow with Google is an initiative that draws on our 20-year history of building products, platforms, and services that help people and businesses grow. Through Grow with Google, we aim to help everyone across America – those who make up the workforce of today and the students who will drive the workforce of tomorrow – access the best of Google’s training and tools to grow their skills, careers, and businesses.

  • Students and teachers can learn how to put the latest technology to work inside and outside of the classroom.
  • Small business owners can build their online presence and find new customers.
  • Job seekers can grow their skills in order to find new jobs and advance their careers.
  • Startups can learn how to get their ideas the exposure they need to succeed.
  • Developers can sharpen their current skills and master new ones.

Tools and training for everyone

Making tools and training easily accessible online for free is just one part of Grow with Google. We’re also bringing workshops, in-person training, and one-on-one coaching to cities and towns across America, in partnership with community groups and local leaders.

Working with community partners

We’re also proud to support nonprofits that are working hard to ensure more Americans have the skills they need to succeed in an increasingly digital economy. Organizations like Goodwill, the largest workforce development organization in the United States, which will use a $10 million grant from Google.org to enable 1.2 million people to expand their skills and career opportunities. And 4-H, the nation’s largest youth development organization, is using a $1.5 million grant from Google.org to give students the opportunity to grow future skills through hands-on computer science activities and launch a new career pathway program. We’re also providing a $7 million grant to Digital Promise to fund the Dynamic Learning Project – a new pilot that’s bringing embedded coaching and technology to teachers at 50 underserved middle schools.

We hope that by making our resources available to everyone online, by bringing hands-on training into communities across the country, and by supporting organizations working to expand access to digital tools and training, we can help all Americans grow their skills, their opportunities, and their futures.
