The Boys and Girls Clubs organization in Tennessee has been given $105,000 from AT&T as a corporate contribution.

This donation will support a project called Project Learn in 21 clubs across the state, which will strengthen kids’ developmental skills and learning activities.

The State President of AT &T, Gregg Morton, presented the donation at the Halls/Powell Boys & Girls Clubs in Knoxville, Tennessee.

AT&T hopes this will encourage business investment in educational initiatives for tomorrow’s workforce by providing the children skills to learn jobs.

The Boys and Girls clubs will receive $5,000 apiece to support Project Learn. The Project takes what the children learn at school, and produces high-yield learning activities that enhance and reinforce them.

By writing activities, reading, games, and homework help, this will produce cognitive skills and strengthen them.

The president of the Boys & Girls Clubs in Tennessee, Bob Schrader, believes AT&T will receive a great return on their investment because, as those kids grow up and make their place in the world, it will create a better future for the next generation in Tennessee.
