JA AMERICAS LAUNCHES FIRST REGIONAL PARTNERSHIP WITH GOOGLE
The project that started in Brazil will benefit 2000 young Brazilians in vulnerable situation, who will learn the necessary digital skills to get a job. Argentina will also receive the program that aims to be scaled to other countries in the region.
JA Americas is proud to announce the kick off for its first partnership with Google, which first implementation will be led by JA Brazil: Through the "Professional Certificate of Support in IT" course, more than 2000 young Brazilians will be trained to obtain the necessary digital skills to get a job.
Thanks to the $ 1.2 M grant from Google.org, Brazil will help vulnerable communities to access the course for free. Google will amplify its partnership with JA Americas with a project in Argentina, as part of a regional initiative that is also supported by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB).
