To help increase youth development and character-building outcomes, Boys & Girls Clubs of America received funding from AT&T to develop and pilot a cost-effective and scalable continuous quality improvement system. Our research has shown that a high-quality Club Experience, combined with regular attendance, drives positive youth outcomes such as graduating on time, volunteering in the community, being physically active and abstaining from risky behaviors.
Additionally, AT&T continues to support the Aspire Mentorship Engagement Program. Since 2012, AT&T has provided mentorship opportunities to Club members in 22 markets. AT&T has provided over one million mentorship hours to support charities where their employees live and work.
