ASC3: Digital Literacy and Technology Training Center
ANNOUNCEMENT: New Partnership with Google!
We’re THRILLED to be awarded a $25K grant from @netinclusion and @Google through the Ujima Project: a grant challenge to help Black job seekers & students advance their careers with #GrowWithGoogle digital skills training.
ASC3 will leverage several Grow with Google (GwG) partner resources by incorporating select content into our classes, alongside some of our existing curriculum tools. We will present a 6-week hybrid learning program, “L.E.T.S. Grow with Google…Learn Empowering Technology Skills”, delivering the first few weeks in-person, utilizing CDC safety protocol for protection against COVID-19, the final weeks will include virtual training.
The program is designed address the abysmal unemployment rate in the African American (AA) community in the city of Cleveland, by upskilling AA jobseekers with the necessary tools to improve their quality of life. It is imperative that we ensure our residents have the skills to successfully compete for and obtain a meaningful living wage.
