“I remain a technology optimist.
Not because I believe in technology,
but because I believe in people.”

– Sundar Pichai

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

Now more than ever, Americans need digital skills to land the jobs they want, advance their careers, and grow their businesses. Grow with Google aims to help by providing training, tools and expertise.

Since 2017, more than eight million Americans1 have grown their businesses and careers with help from Grow with Google’s trainings and in-person workshops. And through a network of more than 8,000 partner organizations1 - including local libraries, schools, and nonprofits—more people across the country have access to our online tools and flexible programs.

We believe that technology has the power to unlock new opportunities for growth. When those opportunities are available to everyone, communities across the country can achieve their full potential.

Tools and training for everyone

Making tools and training easily accessible online 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

Grow with Google is proud to work alongside organizations that are doing great work in their communities. These organizations ensure more Americans learn the skills they need to succeed in an increasingly digital economy. Helping our partners achieve their missions is vital to us achieving ours.

Partner Program

The Grow with Google Partner Program provides resources that community organizations can use to teach digital skills that can help people grow their careers and businesses. Partners receive, at no cost, program materials, training and a dedicated support team. We work with partners of all sizes from anywhere in the United States.

Philanthropy

Through Google.org, Google’s philanthropic arm, we’ve also made grants to several organizations, helping them extend their impact.

Google's commitment of $180M has enabled Opportunity Finance Network to establish the Grow with Google Small Business Fund and OFN's Grant Program, funded by Google.org to assist Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs) working with underserved small businesses. To date, over $149M in loans and grants have been disbursed to OFN member CDFIs.

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.
