AT&T Volunteers Mentor NYC High School Students

Posted by Marissa Shorenstein on June 09, 2016


Dear Friends,

Here at AT&T, we believe that mentoring can help change a young person’s life. AT&T employees live that philosophy through the thousands of volunteer hours they commit to helping teenagers.

AT&T New York City started the year off with several exciting mentoring events held in conjunction with community partners.

ArrowIn February, several OxyGen volunteers gathered with high school students as part of East Harlem’s Union Settlement College Readiness Program. Our OxyGen volunteers answered questions about college, careers and building a professional network. Volunteers described how their college education helped them on their path to job success. With lots of pizza and many enthusiastic questions, it was a terrific experience for both the volunteers and the students!

AT&T accepted an award for their work with Union Settlement's College Readiness Program.

ArrowIn March, AT&T and DIRECTV hosted a cohort of high school girls from Step Up for Women (SUWN). SUWN serves female high school students, bringing them on group trips to various workplace environments and introducing them to women executives. A panel of 5 female executives discussed career paths and the experience of working at AT&T and DIRECTV. To wrap up the event, the executives led the students through a mock decision-making scenario, giving them a real-life sense of workplace life.

ArrowLastly, AT&T had the honor of participating in Say Yes to the Prom Dress, a day of mentorship, prom dress shopping and tuxedo rental fittings, as well as head-to-toe makeovers for deserving New York City high school students. Thirty AT&T volunteers served as professional mentors turned style advisors, helping the students choose from 2,000 donated dresses and hundreds of shoes and accessories. Students and mentors also had an opportunity to bond over breakfast and lunch, and many made great connections for continuing the mentoring relationships. A red carpet runway show wrapped up the day, giving each student an opportunity to show off their amazing prom looks!

AT&T Celebrates Workforce Development Pilot Graduation

Posted by Marissa Shorenstein on June 08, 2016

AT&T collaborated with the College of Staten Island to pilot a workforce development program that provides graduates with a CompTIA A+ Certification, a respected IT industry credential, as well as an externship to give them real life work experience and potential job opportunities. With approximately one-third of young people unemployed and disengaged from school, programs like these are critical for opening the door to work opportunities. A group of 10 incredibly motivated and hardworking young men between the ages of 18 and 24 participated in the 5-month training program, culminating in a graduation ceremony attended by the Staten Island Borough President, the President of the College of Staten Island and many family members and friends. We look forward to working with the College during the coming summer to help high school students explore STEM subjects and college life!

50 AT&T employees in New York earn award from U.S. President for helping others

Posted by Marissa Shorenstein on April 13, 2016

Dear Friends,

Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Life’s most urgent question is: what are you doing for others?”

For many AT&T employees, the answer is serving their communities in their own unique ways a few hours every month. Some have mentored students in science and math by building a robot for a national competition; others have organized a USO (United States Organizations) event for active duty service members and veterans; and a few even planned kayak trips for youth. Over a year, these individual hours of serving can add up to hundreds of service hours, which contribute to millions of hours across our company.

This month, we recognize 4,527 employees, including 50 in New York, who logged more than 100 hours of community service in 2015. They are receiving the President’s Volunteer Service Award (PVSA), a prestigious honor given by the President of the United States in recognition of sustained volunteer service. Many employees this year volunteered more than 500 hours and will be honored with a Gold Award for their outstanding service to their community. Additionally, we are recognizing 77 international employees who will also be honored for their service.

Here are individuals who received the honor in our state:

We would like to congratulate our PVSA 2015 recipients for their commitment to serving and improving the communities where they live and work. We also would like to thank them for answering the most pressing question: “what are you doing for others?”
