Grow with Google partners with Texas nonprofits

Written by Lindsay Tooker

Seven Texas nonprofits have been selected to receive $4 million in funding from Google’s Grow with Google initiative to provide digital skills training and job placement support to more than 679,000 Texas inmates.

Grow with Google was started in 2017 to help Americans grow their skills, careers, and businesses. It provides training, tools, and expertise to help small business owners, veterans and military families, jobseekers and students, educators, startups, and developers. Since Grow with Google’s inception, it has helped more than nine million Americans develop new skills with its network of more than 8,500 community partner organizations.

Funded Texas organizations include:

These organizations were selected because of their history of helping people who have been impacted by incarceration. Funded organizations will deliver programs to inmates and their families focused on learning how to use smartphones, conduct Zoom calls, find and apply for jobs online, online safety – like avoiding phishing scams, using Google Docs, online budget spreadsheets, mobile calendars, and other digital communication tools.
