Preparing tomorrow’s workforce for college and careers creates opportunities for people around the world. Our resources unleash the possibility for communities to be successful. Through investments in both innovative ed-tech and proven education programs, and through one-on-one mentorship alongside large-scale volunteer efforts, possibilities unlock.

AT&T Aspire

Preparing students for their future — whether in college or career — requires resources and imagination. When technology enables learning, role models support students and new investment fuels existing education programs, minds around the world are inspired. That’s the power of AT&T Aspire.


$317 million invested through AT&T Aspire since 2008 toward a $350 million commitment to education. 

Mobilizing Learning

Technology is fundamentally altering education by removing barriers so that everyone — regardless of age, gender, income or location — has the opporrtunity to make her dreams a reality. We are driving this change by developing tools for anytime, anywhere learning.

Powering Career Skills

The tech industry needs a capable and diverse pipeline of employees to fuel 21st century jobs. The need is currently outpacing the supply of skilled talent. To power the global economy, we need to bridge the skills gap and build a diverse talent pipeline for the jobs of today and the future.

Mentoring and Volunteering

Helping a student with math homework from 2,000 miles away. Cleaning up a local park. Serving hot meals to those less fortunate. When we work beyond our own four walls to better our communities, we discover our better selves. 


More than 5.4 million employee and retiree volunteer hours in 2015.

Aspire Mentoring Academy

When a mentor and a student connect and share experiences, both gain perspective. Aspire Mentoring Academy matches AT&T employees with students who need mentors. We collaborate with nonprofit education groups to make these matches. Events take place at AT&T work locations, online and in the community. The program helps students gain life skills, learn about diverse career paths, and ultimately understand how their achievements today connect to their success tomorrow.

Do One Thing

Think of one action you can take today to improve the world around you. What if taking this action inspired two others to take an action of their own? By doing one thing, you could open up possibilities for people you may not even know. This is the challenge we pose to employees with our Do One Thing (DOT) initiative.
