Facebook is teaming up with community colleges as part of a nationwide effort to teach digital-literacy skills to small-business leaders and others in cities.
This week the company announced that it will add 17 more community colleges as partners by the end of 2018, for a total of 20 partnerships. An example of an already existing community college partnership is with Central New Mexico Community College, where Facebook has been working on a new Digital Marketing Certificate program, and has offered 32 scholarships for students to attend the institution’s “Deep Dive Coding Bootcamps.”
