AT&T and the AT&T Foundation have awarded Easterseals Redwood a $16,000 grant to support its Work & Grow program, as part of the foundation’s efforts to bridge the digital divide.
Work & Grow is a unique education, job training and community integration program specifically designed to empower individuals with developmental disabilities. With this grant, the program can support our supportive service staff as well as purchase computers so participants can improve digital literacy, earn online certifications and receive job coaching, employment services and wrap-around supports. Computers will also be purchased to supplement digital learning and certification training for participants with disabilities seeking careers in the Hospitality Industry.
AT&T has supported Work & Grow for several years now, and the agency is grateful for its continued generosity of support. AT&T is committed to developing and supporting programs and initiatives that make a meaningful impact. AT&T philanthropic giving and community engagement efforts include initiatives that promote academic success, provide job skills training, drive innovation, empower women and underrepresented communities, and respond to worldwide disasters and emergencies.
