About the Program
Google.org and Goodwill, the United States’ leading workforce development nonprofit, have joined forces to launch the Goodwill Digital Career Accelerator. Funded by a $10 million grant from Google.org and with the assistance of 1,000 Google volunteers, this new Goodwill initiative will mobilize 125 local, community-based Goodwill organizations as they equip more than one million people with expanded and enhanced digital skills training over the course of three years.
According to the U.S. Department of Labor, there are more than 6 million job openings in the United States, and advanced skills such as computer support or programming are increasingly essential for well-paying, in-demand careers for diverse populations across the country. This innovative initiative will empower Goodwill organizations to enhance their job training programs to equip their employees, job seekers and career advances with the ever-growing demand for new skills in the digital economy.
