When a mentor connects with a mentee, both lives are changed for the better.

That’s why AT&T employees are committed to providing mentoring to students through Aspire Mentoring Academy, a part of AT&T Aspire.

AT&T is excited to announce that in less than 4 years, AT&T employees have provided 1 million hours of mentoring to students who need it most, here in Illinois and across the globe.

With the launch of Aspire Mentoring Academy in the fall of 2012, they set a goal to provide 1 million hours of mentoring by the end of 2016. Since that launch, 830 AT&T employees have provided 79,027 mentoring hours to 14,166 students here in Illinois.

Reaching this milestone is a testament to the commitment and enthusiasm of our employees. As mentors, employees connect with students to help them discover their passions and potential. Watch the video below to learn more about the impact this experience has had on students and employees.
