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.
The Grow with Google Partner Program provides free 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.

Through Google.org, Google’s philanthropic arm, we’ve also made grants to several organizations, helping them extend their impact.
Goodwill is using a $10 million grant from Google.org to establish the Goodwill Digital Career Accelerator® (GDCA) in 126 US Goodwills. Aiming to jump-start career opportunities for 1.2 million people by 2021, the GDCA helps Goodwill respond to the digital economy, with support from Google’s tools, resources, and talent. Read the report on the first year of impact and learnings here.
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. And USO, which supports 4.9 million service members and their families, received a $2.5 million dollar grant from Google.org to provide training and career guidance in IT support.
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.
