Google, AARP Partnership Aims to Help Older Workers Gain More Digital Skills

Digital Skills

Good news for those needing to develop digital skills for their transition to a green job:

Older workers will get taught some new tricks over the next couple of years thanks to a partnership between Google and the AARP to help people ages 50 and over improve their digital and technology skills. The collaboration is designed to help older employees stay competitive in the modern labor market — and maybe ease the labor crunch facing many U.S. employers.

The AARP Foundation is teaming up with Google’s philanthropy arm, Google.org, to implement the program. Much of the training will target women, lower-income employees and people of color, CNBC reported.

About 25,000 workers will take part in the program, called Digital Skills Ready@50+. It will kick off in these eight states over the next two years: Arizona, Georgia, Illinois, Louisiana, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina and Texas. Read the full article on Yahoo Finance.
