To further support education initiatives across the country, AT&T is contributing more than $1 million to teacher-focused organizations as they gear up for back to school.
Contributions will support:
Teach For America's high-caliber leadership and diversity, equity and inclusion training to their corps members and alumni
Breakthrough Collaborative's work to place 1,100 Teaching Fellows into summer internship roles that will empower them in the virtual classroom
ISTE's Summer Learning Academy, which is helping K-12 educators prepare to return to a school system faced with a dramatic shift towards distance and blended learning
Alliance for Excellent Education's expansion of its Instructional Coaches Leadership Program, supporting emergency needs, continuity of learning plans and more for educators across the country.
"Teachers play a fundamental role in shaping the lives of their students, often going beyond their role as educator to serve as counselor, mentor and caretaker," said Charlene Lake, SVP, corporate social responsibility and chief sustainability officer, AT&T. "The investment teachers make in their students is unparalleled, which is why we're thrilled to be collaborating with organizations providing teachers the tools and resources they need to continue this important work."
Financial support for teachers is made possible in part through AT&T's Distance Learning & Family Connections fund. The fund was created in response to COVID-19 to give parents, students and teachers tools for at-home learning.
