We are proud that in 2018, 3,100 Mississippi businesses, website publishers, and nonprofits benefitted from Google tools and that we helped provide $168 million of economic activity for Mississippi 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 Mississippi. According to the National Skills Coalition, only 50% of state workers are trained to the middle-skill level.
We’re excited to partner with terrific libraries and community organizations throughout the state to help Mississippi job seekers and small businesses learn digital skills.
