It's all part of Aio's "30 Days, 30 Dreams," a program designed to reinvigorate nonprofit programs that create opportunities for future leaders in the communities it serves. After launching the program in Houston and Orlando earlier this year, Aio is expanding the program to Atlanta, Los Angeles, and Dallas.
"'30 Days, 30 Dreams' is about working together with organizations that make dreams a reality for our leaders of tomorrow," said Norelie Garcia, Aio's director of sponsorships and community engagement.
"When we launched service in May, we said that Aio would be known for being positive contributors to and a real part of the communities where our customers live and work, as well as the neighborhoods we serve," Garcia added. "'30 Days, 30 Dreams' is one of the ways we show our attitude of gratitude for the opportunity to serve our communities."
In Atlanta, Aio collaborated with three community-based organizations to identify the 30 local scholarship recipients: 100 Black Men of Atlanta (North and South metro councils); the Latin American Association; and Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta. The Atlanta students were honored last night at an event and presented with the scholarships and tablets.
The next two celebrations are scheduled for November 12 in Los Angeles and December 3 in Dallas.
After each event, Aio will continue to celebrate, encourage and inspire achievement for 30 days by highlighting the dreams and aspirations of the scholarship recipients on its Community Blog, Instagram and Facebook pages.
