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.
