Goodwill Community Foundation (GCF) has partnered with Facebook to help the social media and social networking company with its pledge to train 1 million US business owners and equip more people with the digital skills they need to compete in the modern workplace.
Facebook is launching Learn with Facebook, a career development site that provides an introduction to both the hard and soft skills people need to advance in today's digital workforce. To help make Learn With Facebook's lessons as accessible as possible, Facebook is partnering with Goodwill Community Foundation to scale this training across the US.
GCF and Facebook will work together to curate training resources for individuals of all backgrounds and education levels. Learn with Facebook's lessons include “Ace Your Interview” and “Manage Your Content Marketing” and are free to access. They feature case studies, insider tips, and resources from industry experts.
“We are thrilled that Facebook recognizes our work and wants to utilize our programs that have helped more than 60 million people around the world learn essential skills to live and work in the 21st century,” said Rev. Dennis McLain, president and CEO of Goodwill Community Foundation. “This partnership demonstrates GCF’s mission to ‘Create Opportunities for a Better Life’ and provides support for those who want to advance in today's digital economy.”
