AT&T Brings Mentoring Program for Secondary School Students to Europe
AT&T* is planning a career mentoring program for secondary school students across Europe to help them succeed after they leave school. The company has contributed $116,000 to Young Enterprise, the enterprise education charity, to identify schools in France, Germany, Slovakia, The Netherlands and the UK, as well as Israel.
AT&T employee volunteers and Young Enterprise will lead custom master classes about future study, career options, personal goal statements and interview techniques. Where possible, students will gain work experience through job shadowing with AT&T employees.
The program is similar to AT&T Aspire Mentoring Academy, which gives AT&T employees in the U.S. the opportunity to mentor students across the country. Junior Achievement (JA), the sister organization of Young Enterprise, is one of the non-profits working with Aspire Mentoring Academy.
Aspire Mentoring Academy is part of AT&T Aspire, the company’s signature philanthropic initiative. AT&T Aspire helps young people in the U.S. complete secondary school and prepare for continued study and careers.
