AT&T recently presented City Year Columbus with a $100,000 Aspire contribution to support the organization’s efforts to prevent high school dropout. City Year Columbus is a nonprofit organization that unites AmeriCorps members for a year of service in Columbus City Schools. Through this collaboration, AT&T’s contribution will support the team at Linden McKinley STEM Academy.
As part of AT&T Aspire AT&T works with City Year affiliates across the country to support student academic achievement and socio-emotional growth, with the goal of increasing the number of students who are on-track to graduate prepared for college and career. City Year Columbus deploys City Year AmeriCorps members to work with students in grades three through ten, with research-based interventions targeting the early warning indicators of poor attendance, behavior incidents, and course failure in Math and English.
AT&T’s signature philanthropic initiative, AT&T Aspire, drives innovation in education to promote student success in school and beyond. AT&T is leveraging technology, relationships and social innovation to help all students make their biggest dreams a reality.
