Military / Veteran Support
AT&T Veterans EG, as a standalone 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization, is not formally affiliated with AT&T, so our activities compliment the very significant efforts of the company on behalf of Veterans – both AT&T employees and non-employees. Our EG makes independent decisions regarding our volunteer service and fund raising/fund allocation activities.
In many cases, programs that started with one Veteran EG Chapter turned into enduring programs sponsored by Corporate AT&T. One example of this is the Carry The Load campaign, which, after initial volunteer support offered by our EG now receives funding, technical support, and AT&T-wide volunteer service.
In other cases, programs remain primarily within our EG, such as Chapter involvement in VA hospital visits, Care Packages for deployed personnel, and Angel Flight participation (escorting WWII Veterans to view the WWII Memorial in Washington, DC).
The AT&T Veterans EG is also developing a member mentoring program, primarily focused on Veteran employees trying to navigate a new HR and Career Progression culture that is much different from the military.
Check with your Chapter President or another Chapter Officer about your Chapter’s participation in these activities – or, take the lead to start a program in your local community.
Furthermore, we are committed to our troops and offer positions for every type of military background. Visit us online to use our military translator tool, join our veteran talent network, and connect with AT&T Veterans at att.jobs/military.
