Reading and writing are foundational to education, and today we’re both proud and happy to let you know about a student literacy project being undertaken by our colleagues at AT&T.
Through its signature philanthropic initiative, AT&T Aspire, AT&T is teaming-up with the non-profit tutoring and mentoring group 826 National to help students explore their potential as authors—seeing them through every aspect of the creation of their own books. And toward this end, in addition to a financial contribution, the company is making available the greatest resource there is: people. AT&T employees will volunteer as mentors to help students through the process.

Teachers, we’re thrilled to share with you the opportunity for you and your class to participate in Read to Discover A World of Infinite Possibilities, a unique Virtual Field Trip that Discovery Education is hosting in collaboration with the White House and President Obama, this Thursday, April 30th at 10:40am.
Broadcast LIVE from Washington, D.C., President Obama will connect with thousands of students nationwide to highlight the importance of reading and expanding digital literacy. It should be an incredible event, as the President shares his own love of reading and thoughts about how digital content and technology open up a world of learning.
This virtual field trip is the latest event in Discovery Education’s “Of the People: Live from the White House” Virtual Field Trip series, which transports students behind the scenes to learn about the people, places and issues that shape our world.
Register your class today. It’s free!
