We are closing out the year just the way we started it: connecting people to opportunity. From connecting military veterans to career training to connecting younger students to afterschool STEM programs, this is what all of us at AT&T do every day. I am so proud of what we have accomplished this year in New Jersey. And as I look forward to 2018, I am excited for what is to come. But before we get to January, I want to wish all of you, your family and your friends a happy holiday season and a happy New Year!

Boys & Girls Clubs in New Jersey Receive Support from AT&T for STEM Programs
$80,000 helps students in Paterson & Passaic; Trenton, Ewing & Lawrence; and Atlantic City boost STEM skills
Boys and Girls Clubs are places where young people can learn new things, make new friends, learn from mentors, and develop skills that will help them achieve great futures as productive, caring, responsible citizens.
To help students learn and sharpen their science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) skills, AT&T in 2017 contributed $80,000 to 3 clubs in New Jersey, so they could enhance STEM programs offered to students. The support is part of AT&T Aspire, AT&T’s signature philanthropic initiative to drive student success in school and beyond, according to J. Michael Schweder, president, AT&T Mid Atlantic.
The Boys & Girls Club of Paterson & Passaic received $25,000 to support the d2D/STEM Experience that prepares underserved high school students for college and career by providing paid internships, STEM-based experiential learning opportunities, SAT preparation activities and field trips.
Students from Trenton, Ewing and Lawrence will benefit from a $25,000 contribution to the Boys & Girls Club of Mercer County to support the After School STEM Academy, an experiential learning program where underserved high school students explore various aspects of STEM and participate in college-readiness activities.
And, in Atlantic City, a $30,000 contribution from AT&T to the Boys & Girls Club of Atlantic City supports the AC STEM Initiative. Through this program, high school students get an opportunity to acquire 21st Century skills in the field of technology, to participate in academic reinforcement and college preparation activities, and to explore local STEM careers and occupations.
