We invest in projects and organisations that expand access to learning
Through Google.org, we've committed more than $250 million since 2005 to tackle global education gaps, while empowering Googlers to volunteer their technical expertise. Our goal is to help more people – especially those in underserved communities – benefit from the promise of technology, in the classroom and beyond.
Turning bus time into learning time
While schoolwork increasingly requires access to the Internet, millions of students still lack connectivity at home.
We’re working with districts across the US to expand Rolling Study Halls to help thousands of students in rural communities access more learning hours outside of school by powering their school buses with Wi-Fi, devices and onboard educator support.
Helping equip the next generation with future skills
More than 65% of learners will work in jobs that don’t even exist today,¹ but many aren’t yet developing the problem-solving skills and basic digital competencies that they’ll need to be prepared for that future.
We are providing grant funding to nonprofits, building programmes to expand access to computer science education and helping train more female and under-represented students in computational thinking. It’s our goal to prepare every learner with the adaptive skills that they need to tackle the future's biggest challenges.
