Google Community Leaders Program

The Google Community Leaders Program originated in New Orleans in the years after Hurricane Katrina, when Google, Inc. recognized the need for digital literacy among the  local businesses. Since then, the program has expanded to various cities across the nation, including Columbus, Ohio and Provo, Utah. This year Google Community Leader's first operates in Detroit & Ann Arbor, Michigan.  Students from Wayne State University, the University of Michigan - Dearborn, Eastern Michigan University and the University of Michigan - Ann Arbor will be coached by Google and work for one year to empower small businesses and non-profits in Metro Detroit and Ann Arbor, build community, and bridge the digital literacy gap.
