Working with organizations across the U.S., we’re helping equip people who have been impacted by the justice system with digital skills they can use to get a job or start a business.
More than 65 partners are using Google digital skills curriculum to help people who have been impacted by incarceration find and maintain jobs. The lessons were co-curated with the help of five justice-reform-focused partners, and range from basic skills training on topics like job searching and resume building, to more advanced training on topics like using spreadsheets to budget for a business.
Through this initiative, we remove digital literacy barriers for people who have been impacted by incarceration, helping them gain greater access to jobs.
