Iata ce au declarat reprezentantii Metallica si All Within My Hands Foundation:
“The All Within My Hands Foundation and Metallica are proud to announce this major new initiative. While the foundation continues our support for the fight against hunger and emergency community aid, we are now expanding our mission to include support for career and technical education.
The goal of our Metallica Scholars Initiative is to improve career opportunities for community college students in the trades. Equally, we hope to raise the awareness of the tremendous importance, value and impact of the education provided by our nation’s community college system.
The foundation and the band are thrilled by the quality of proposals we received from these colleges, and are excited to do our part to help educate students so that they have the skills and training necessary to find meaningful and well-paying jobs in their communities.
“All of us in the band feel fortunate that music has provided us the opportunity to be successful doing something we are passionate about… We want to share our success with others so that they can find a job where they can do the same.”
