    Google.org and Goodwill, the United States’ leading workforce development nonprofit, have joined forces to launch the Goodwill Digital Career Acceleratorsm. 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 advancers with the ever-growing demand for new skills in the digital economy.

    “With the ten million dollar investment from Google.org and the talent invested by Googler volunteers, local, community-based Goodwill organizations will be empowered to be key places where job seekers can build their digital skills. From becoming aware of digital career opportunities to learning basic digital skills to earning credentials from entry level to middle skills, Google.org’s investment will equip people to advance their careers and improve their lives,” said Wendi Copeland, SVP of Strategy and Advancement, Mission Advancement of Goodwill Industries International. “Career navigation leads to long-term economic stability for individuals, their families and the greater community. Together with Google, we are helping people change their lives and their families’ lives.”
