AT&T employees are teaming up with Rockwood High School students this month to help maximize student potential in a mentoring program geared toward preparing students for future success.

AT&T employees will share life and career skills with Rockwood students in a mentoring program on April 19.

“We are very excited to work with Junior Achievement as we mobilize our employees to provide students 1 million hours of mentoring across the country,” said Janiece Evans-Page, assistant vice presiden of community engagement at AT&T.

“We believe that the relationships formed and lessons learned during onsite mentoring can help students stay on track to graduate from high school and succeed in college, the workforce and beyond.”

AT&T employees are engaging in their communities to help raise high school graduation rates by providing students 1 million hours of mentoring through the end of 2016.

“We are looking forward to working with AT&T to build on our Job Shadow program and offer a deeper mentoring experience to students,” said Chip Reed, Junior Achievement of East Tennessee president.

“By encouraging their employees to volunteer their time and expertise, AT&T is helping local students learn 21st-century skills that will help them succeed in school and beyond.”
