The Facebook Community Boost Program, a multi-day workshop that will bring together small business owners, entrepreneurs, job seekers and community groups is coming to New Orleans Aug. 7 – 9 at River City Venues 1380 Port of Orleans PL New Orleans, LA 70130.“We’re inspired by what small businesses have been able to do using Facebook, but we
want to do more—particularly for those who are transitioning to careers that require more digital skills,” said the company in a statement.  “That’s why we have launched the Facebook Community Boost program, which will visit 50 cities across the US in 2018, in an effort to help US small businesses grow and to equip more people with the digital skills they need to compete in the new economy.”

Attendees of the program will learn how to use technology to grow their business to learn new skills. Some of the workshops being offered include:

  • Facebook for small business 101/201/301,
  • Facebook for non-profits,
  • digital skills education,
  • leveling the playing field with big brands by going global,
  • Instagram for small businesses, financial readiness, and other programming to help make it easier to run a non-profit or business

Since 2011, Facebook has invested more than $1 billion in training, technology, tools, support and research to help people and small businesses alike. In the US, this includes training more than 60,000 small businesses in person and more than one million small businesses online. And, we recently created a digital marketing curriculum that will help train people in digital skills development over the next two years.
