Google Information Sessions for Not for Profits
9 June 2011 at 11:38 am
Google is set to run free information sessions to educate Not for Profit organisations about the product, services and support that Google offers to NFPs.
The Google for Nonprofits program connects charitable organisations with products and resources to help them expand their impact – such as providing NFPs with a free or discounted version of Google Apps, free Adwords advertising, premium branding and increased uploads to YouTube, and free licensing for Google Earth and Maps.
The sessions, to be held in early July, will be run by Google employee volunteers and will take place over two mornings at Google’s Sydney office.
General Information Session on July 7th (9am to 1pm)
This session is designed to provide a broad, high level overview of Google's not-for-profit solutions and support, everything from Gmail & Blogger to Youtube & Maps. Information will also be provided on the Google Grants programme. The session is best suited to leaders from charitable organisations that are interested in better understanding how they can use Google technology.
Detailed Adwords & Youtube Sessions on July 8th (9.30am to 12.30pm)
These are essentially follow up sessions to provide more detailed training on how Not for Profits can utilise Google Adwords and / or Youtube. These sessions are best attended by the individual in a charitable organisation who is likely to be handling the implementation. Organisations can chose to attend one or both of these sessions.
Attendance at the sessions is free, however due to limited space at Google’s offices, only one representative per organisations is able to attend. Places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
