On Monday, March 4, 2019, Google is coming to Roanoke as part of its Grown with Google initiative to help create economic opportunity in communities across the United States.
Google will hose a free, one-day event at Roanoke's Main Library, located at 706 S. Jefferson Street, S.

Google launched Grow with Google in 2017 with the goal of helping all Americans access the best of Google’s training and tools to grow their skills, careers, and businesses. The initiative aims to address the skills gap by preparing Americans for middle-skill jobs; positions that require some skills, but not four-year degrees.
