June 26 2018 | Goodwill to present Digital Skills Training workshop at Lunch & Learn

Goodwill Industries will present “Google and Goodwill Joining Forces to Provide Digital Skills Training to Professionals and the Community” at the Chamber’s Lunch & Learn on Tuesday, June 26, at noon at The River Tower, 1108 Third Ave., Huntington, Sixth Floor. Goodwill Industries of KYOWVA Area, Inc. is among the 125 local Goodwill organizations that were competitively chosen to be the first to provide digital skills training services through a new initiative with Google. The Goodwill Digital Career AcceleratorSM is made possible by a $10 million grant from Google and volunteer assistance from 1,000 Google employees. Over the next three years, the Goodwill Digital Career Accelerator will result in more than 1 million people around the United States being trained in skills that will make them more marketable workers for the digital age. Digital skills include basic computer skills that would be used to establish an email address, utilize Microsoft Office Suite and Google Docs, apply for a job or perform many entry level tasks. More advanced digital skills include computer support and cybersecurity, which are increasingly relevant for achieving well-paying, in-demand careers across the country. Lunch and Learn is free for members. Lunch is included. Due to limited seating, only two individuals per company will be registered. To RSVP, call 304.525.5131 or email chamber@huntingtonchamber.org.
