Facebook has announced that it’s going to establish three digital training skills to train people in digital skills. The company says that it’s committed to training more than one million people in online skills over the next two years. This is part of Facebook’s efforts to make contributions to the community.
Facebook has confirmed that it will establish three new digital training hubs in Europe. These “community skills hubs” are going to be based in Spain, Poland, and Italy. Facebook is also going to invest $12.2 million in France through its artificial intelligence research facility.
“People are worried that the digital revolution is leaving people behind and we want to make sure that we’re investing in digital skills to get people the skills they need to fully participate in the digital economy,” said Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook’s chief operating officer.
The community hubs will provide training in media literacy, digital skills, and online safety to groups that have limited access to technology. This will include the young, older members of the society and refugees.
This isn’t the first time that the company is opening centers like this to provide digital training. It has previously opened similar centers in countries like Brazil and Nigeria.
“Absolutely we want to make sure that people see that we are investing locally, we’re investing in technology, we’re investing in humans,” Sandberg said.
