For the 2014-2015 school year, AT&T Aspire —a $350 million commitment focused on high school success and workforce readiness for students at risk of dropping out of school – will expand employee mentoring efforts through the Aspire Mentoring Academy. 

AT&T will launch a new public-private partnership with AmeriCorps and MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership to provide mentoring to thousands of young people at risk of dropping out of high school.

Other collaborations include:

· Boys & Girls Clubs of America will work with AT&T employees at Club locations across the country in after school mentoring activities and at AT&T locations during the summer break.

· Communities In Schools will expand work with AT&T to connect employees with opportunities to mentor students in cities across the country - both at AT&T offices and in schools.

· AT&T will announce this fall the winners of a national Aspire funding competition that focuses on high school success and college- and career-readiness programs.
