Supporting proven models that ensure high school student success.
AT&T and City Year share the belief that every student deserves opportunities to reach their full potential. AT&T provides significant funding for City Year’s implementation of its Whole School Whole Child services and sponsors eight teams of City Year AmeriCorps members serving high schools in Baton Rouge, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Los Angeles, Miami and New York. AT&T also has been a major supporter of Diplomas Now, an innovative collaboration using evidence-based models designed to help the most systemically under-resourced schools by addressing the holistic needs of students.
This support is part of AT&T Aspire, the company’s signature philanthropic initiative that drives innovation in education by bringing diverse resources to bear on the issue including funding, technology, employee volunteerism and mentoring. AT&T also collaborates with City Year’s Care Force to engage employees in high-impact service days to create more welcoming environments for students in communities across the country.
For more than 10 years, AT&T Aspire and City Year have worked together to make a difference in the lives of students, teachers, our employees and the communities we serve.
