Earlier this month we announced that we reached an exciting milestone: AT&T employees have provided 1 million hours of mentoring to more than 160,000 students who need it the most through our Aspire Mentoring Academy.
When it comes to helping today’s students graduate from high school and succeed in the workforce, a mentor can make all the difference. In fact, more than one in three students at risk of not graduating from high school grow up without an adult mentor in their life. That’s why we’ve made mentoring a key component of AT&T Aspire, our signature education initiative committed to helping students across the country prepare for college and career – so they can be ready for the jobs of tomorrow.
