We are proud that in 2018, 3,600 Maine businesses, website publishers, and nonprofits benefitted from Google tools and that we helped provide $560 million of economic activity for Maine organizations (source). And we know that for many small businesses, learning how to harness the Internet can help them grow their business.
We also recognize the importance of digital skills when searching for a job in Maine. According to the National Skills Coalition, only 47% of state workers are trained to the middle-skill level.
We’re excited to partner with a terrific library and community organizations throughout the state to help Maine job seekers and small businesses learn digital skills.
