Google staff and volunteers will teach hands-on workshops to provide local non-profits, businesses owners and residents with resources to grow their skills, careers and businesses. In addition to workshops on search engine optimization, advertising analytics and the best way to build a resume for today’s job market, Google will be offering a YouTube-focused tutorial and fireside chat with New Jersey YouTube creator and entrepreneur Laura Vitale. Laura leveraged YouTube to transition from her passion for cooking at her family’s restaurant to a YouTube channel, Laura in the Kitchen, which has over 3.5M subscribers.
