Frequently Asked Questions
Are you already registered or considering attending a Grow with Google West Virginia event? Here’s what you should know before joining us.
Grow with Google is an initiative that draws on our 20-year history of building products, platforms, and services that help people and businesses grow. Through Grow with Google, we aim to help everyone across America – those who make up the workforce of today and the students who will drive the workforce of tomorrow – access the best of Google’s training and tools to grow their skills, careers, and businesses.
We are proud that in 2018, 2,000 West Virginia businesses, website publishers, and nonprofits benefitted from Google tools and that we helped provide $222 million of economic activity for West Virginia 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 West Virginia. According to the National Skills Coalition, but only 49% 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 West Virginia job seekers and small businesses learn digital skills.

Unfortunately, this means the workshop is at capacity and we’re unable to take any additional guests for that workshop. Although it’s unlikely, if we do happen to have extra space on event day, we will create a stand-by line and admit guests on a first-come, first-served basis. We'll do our best to let you in, but it is not guaranteed. If you aren't able to pre-register for a certain workshop, we encourage you to check out our online resources at google.com/grow.
