In today’s fast-paced digital age, a lack of computer-based skills and knowledge can be a barrier to everything from everyday tasks to finding employment or career advancement. With Goodwill’s digital skills training programs, Kansans gain access to a wide range of hands-on workshops, building a more marketable workforce.
The Learn IT Digital Skills Classroom features ten computer stations, a full library of Google-based resources, virtual classroom technology and individual coaching to ensure all participants learn professional-grade digital literacy skills. Aimed at adults, the lab will work with community agencies before arriving at a given location. Once there, participants will learn on-site and be given online access to continue their learning, utilizing referral services in the area such as public libraries, local schools/colleges and workforce centers, for example.
Accelerate your career or improve your daily life with Goodwill’s Learn IT Digital Skills Classroom. Courses will teach basic to intermediate digital skills using Microsoft Office Suite and Google accounts. Alongside Goodwill’s certified instructor, learn practical ways to use these tools in your day-to-day life and how to leverage these skills to open new job opportunities.
Tailored courses are available upon request to help businesses and other groups address specific needs or provide more advanced curriculum.
Individuals can receive one-on-one guidance to obtain certifications and additional education needed to begin a career in Information Technology.
Goodwill Industries of Kansas is the recipient of one of the top 10 grants provided as a part of the Goodwill Digital Career AcceleratorSM program, and that grant will help fund a mobile “Learn IT” (Information Technology) digital skills classroom. Additionally, community supporters (listed below) know the importance of digital skills and have helped sponsor the project.
A national effort, the Goodwill Digital Career Accelerator program is made possible by a $10 million grant from Google and volunteer assistance from 1,000 Google employees. Over the next three years, the program will result in more than 1 million people around the United States being trained in skills that will make them more marketable workers in the digital age.
