AT&T Announces $6,000 AT&T Aspire Contribution for Boys & Girls Club of Noblesville’s Diploma2Degree Program
AT&T Indiana today announced that the Boys & Girls Club of Noblesville is the recipient of a $6,000 AT&T Aspire contribution to help prepare students for future success.
The AT&T Aspire contribution will be utilized by the Boys & Girls Club for its Diploma2Degrees (d2D) program, which provides youth in grades 9 to 12 with tools and resources they need to plan and prepare for college. The d2D sessions offer engaging, hands-on activities related to college planning and preparation, including researching colleges, the application process, financial aid and what to expect on campus. Other topics covered include academic preparation, discovering strengths and interests, gaining practical skills and experience and guidance from teachers and other mentors.
“Our young people must be prepared to face the changing needs of employers and customers. It’s terrific to see this support from AT&T for an organization that is helping to build a viable, creative and adaptive workforce,” said State Sen. Luke Kenley.
Academic success is one of three focus areas of the Boys & Girls Club of Noblesville. The organization’s goal is to positively impact the lives of its members when it comes to their education. Its programs were developed to engage young people in learning, encouraging them to succeed in school and help them become lifelong learners.
“More than ever, community partners play a vital role in shaping the lives of our young people,” said Becky Terry, executive director of the Boys & Girls Club of Noblesville. “This support from AT&T Aspire will enhance our efforts by upgrading the current program space to be more conducive to learning and exploring for our teens. By adding new furniture and improving our technological offerings, we are able to meet the needs and interests of our teens and match up with how they are used to learning in the 21st century.”

Through Aspire, AT&T has already passed the $250 million mark in its plan to invest $350 million in education between 2008 and 2017.
“Education is the best investment we can make to ensure our new hires start day one with the skills they need,” said Steve Rogers, director of Government Affairs for AT&T Indiana. “Through AT&T Aspire, we are promoting student success in school and beyond. It’s one more way we are using the power of our network to build a better tomorrow.”
