Spotlight On Michigan

Training 3,000 Michigan locals in coding and social media marketing skills.

Facebook is partnering with Grand Circus to launch a digital skills program in Michigan. Grand Circus is a tech training school for adults in Detroit and Grand Rapids. They prepare their students - 40% are women and more than 40% are people of color - for entry-level developer roles and place them in jobs with local companies. 92% of Grand Circus’ bootcamp students go on to get full-time jobs within three months of graduation.

Over the next two years, we'll work with Grand Circus and other local community organizations to train 3,000 Michiganders through new courses in social media marketing and by sponsoring bootcamps.
