This Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15–October 15), we invite you to celebrate the richness and diversity of the Latino community through some of the stories and initiatives we have created. We honor the contributions made to U.S. art, culture, and society.

Supporting the Latino Community

In 2019, Google.org seed-funded the Hispanic Federation to launch an accelerator to strengthen institutions serving the Latino community with workforce development and digital training programs. Today, we’re doubling down with a $1M reinvestment. Through this grant, the Hispanic Federation will enhance the capacity of Latino-led and Latino-serving nonprofit organizations, which in turn will provide career-aligned digital skills training to more than 6,000 Latinos over the next year. This builds on our ongoing commitment to the US Latino community, which includes over $20M in Google.org grants over the past five years to help create more access to economic opportunity.

We are also expanding the Grow with Google Career Readiness Program to reach Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs). In partnership with the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU), we’ll provide a $2M investment to more than 35 HSIs across the country. This funding will help HSIs train 200,000 Latino students by 2025 on digital skills that can help them build their careers.

“As a child of immigrants, equitable access to economic opportunity is deeply personal to me. This work helps ensure Latinos everywhere are empowered to own their futures.”
