We are proud that in 2018, 119,000 Texas businesses, website publishers, and nonprofits benefitted from Google tools and that we helped provide $20.8 billion of economic activity for Texas 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 Texas. According to the National Skills Coalition, only 42% 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 Texas job seekers and small businesses learn digital skills.
