Free Grow with Google workshops coming to Elko
JOIN Inc. Training Nevadans for Careers brings four open-to-the-public Google workshops to Elko in July, teaching digital skills for career and social development
Elko, NV – Last year, Google invested $100,000 in a partnership with JOIN Inc. to bring Northern Nevadans workshops that teach digital proficiency. For the first time since the partnership began in Aug. 2018, these workshops will be offered in Elko to help prepare learners for the jobs available in their communities. The lessons are grounded in familiar topics and work environments and the curriculum encourages instructors to interact with learners in a small group.
Four free Grow with Google workshops will be held in July at the Elko JOIN Inc. office (618 Idaho St., #2 Elko, NV 89801) for individuals who want to touch up on their digital and practical life skills or learn something new.
Three “Digital Tools for Everyday Tasks” workshops will be available from July 15-16. These workshops will teach how to communicate through email, use the internet to search, and create Google Docs. One “Use Google to Get a New Job” workshop will be available on July 16. This class will teach Google tools that individuals can use to search for jobs, track applications and write resumes for their career search.
