Looks like they’ll be getting an upgrade.

AT&T employees recently presented a check for $110,000 to Junior Achievement of New York (JA New York), a group that works to proliferate financial literacy and entrepreneurship education among New York City students.

This contribution, made annually as a combined effort from more than 300 AT&T employees since 2009, helps promote the longevity of JA’s programs.

JA New York is a non-profit organization that provides knowledge and skill-building tools to young people as well as connecting corporate and community volunteers with students through in-class activities, after-school programs and job shadowing.

“I can think of only a few organizations that are truly accomplished at inspiring and preparing young people for the real world – and Junior Achievement is one of them,” said Principal Gilberto Vega, Academy of Finance and Enterprise. “This is only possible through the work and dedication of energetic business volunteers, like AT&T, who serve as role models and share their knowledge and expertise.”

The check was presented by AT&T at the Academy of Finance and Enterprise in Long Island City on March 22 to several current students.
