This location has also opened up the potential for AT&T and Georgia Tech to work together. The latest project creates an inclusive experience for people with a visual disability, during the solar eclipse on Aug. 21.

Connecting Students to Their Dreams

Blog

Presence. Sometimes, it is all we need. An ear to listen and a voice to reassure us and offer a few words of advice. For students struggling in school, the absence of an involved adult often exacerbates the problem. That’s why mentoring programs can be so powerful.
