The telecommunications provider said it plans to send around 250 employee volunteers to 125 classrooms in Denver, Boulder, Colorado Springs and Wellington.
Volunteers will spend one day in the classrooms using JA’s lesson plans as guidelines to relay information regarding financial literacy, entrepreneurship and work readiness.
Scott Russell, CenturyLink vice president and general manager for Denver and Northern Colorado said the company aims to share its business experience with the classrooms.
CenturyLink said it has partnered with JA throughout the last nine years to provide similar programs.
The company recently partnered with the Public Education and Business Coalition to provide $150,000 in technology grants for Colorado teachers.
