AT&T Donates $300,000 to Improve Graduation Rates
AT&T recently awarded the Partnership $300,000 for its Family and Community Engagement (FACE) intervention program to increase high school graduation rates in Los Angeles as part of AT&T's Aspire program.
The FACE intervention program is designed to lower the high school dropout rate and raise four-year graduation rates for the 6,700 students attending Partnership high schools. The cornerstone of the Partnership's FACE intervention program is Parent College, which serves parents of Partnership students and all LA-area parents, by providing them with training, tools and strategies to best support their children's education.
AT&T has been a long supporter of education in the United States. AT&T Aspire is one of the largest corporate commitments focused on helping more students graduate from high school prepared for college and careers, with over one million students impacted since its launch in 2008. AT&T announced an additional quarter-billion-dollar expansion to the program earlier this year, bringing the total commitment to $350 million.
Parent College will be hosted at three different sites across all three neighborhoods the Partnership serves. Click HERE for upcoming Parent College dates.
