The Boys & Girls Club of Collier County is a proud partner of AT&T's Aspire which is the company's $350 million signature education initiative. The AT&T Aspire program supports the Club's Formula For Impact which helps ensure youth have access to quality programs, helping them achieve HEALTHY LIFESTYLES, GOOD CHARACTER & CITIZENSHIP, AND ACADEMIC SUCCESS. The Formula for Impact provides members with interactive learning opportunites that give them the greatest opportunity to graduate on time from high school and put them on the path to success.
The Club is one of 30 organizations selected to receive the contributions through a competitve process that included 1,100 applicants nationwide. In 2012, AT&T Aspire committed $10 million to 47 schools and nonprofits to increase graduation and attendance rates and reduce behavioral and discplinary problems. Preliminary results from a third party evaluation of the 2012 recipients show that 9th, 10th and 11th grade students who participated in these programs were significantly more likely to end up on track to graduate than a similarly situated peer group.
