Did you know that nearly one in four high school students will drop out before graduation this year, according to America's Promise Alliance? That's why education has been a priority and key philanthropic focus for more than a century.
Through AT&T Aspire, we’re leading the charge to help more students graduate from high school and get ready for college and careers, better positioning the U.S. to better meet global competition.
AT&T Aspire prepares students for college by helping them develop skills to succeed in the classroom and in life. The program focuses on innovative ways to educate, aligning with nonprofit groups, such as Communities in Schools and Boys and Girls Clubs of America to develop interactive and Web-based learning tools to encourage interest in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).
Aspire Mentoring Academy enables AT&T employees to lend their support by helping students at risk of dropping out of high school to develop skills needed to succeed in the working world. Employees foster relationships with students in three new ways – e-mentoring, skills based mentoring, focusing on STEM areas, and job mentoring, which builds upon AT&T's already successful job shadow initiative.
