We believe that veterans possess identifiable and transferable skills proven in real-life situations, and it is our intention to foster a business culture that recognizes, supports and develops the unique characteristics of our veterans.

Corporate Outreach
At A+E Networks we believe our contribution lies not only in the excellence of our programming but also in our commitment to reaching out to the communities we serve. For over 25 years, we have connected with our audiences in unique ways through outreach efforts in local schools, in local communities and through partnerships throughout the world. Our robust set of outreach programs has had a positive impact on our neighborhoods and on people of all ages. Along the way, these campaigns have proven that they make good business sense, too. A+E Networks believes in helping to make the world a better place, and we hope you’ll join us in our efforts.

A+E Networks: Educational Outreach
A+E Networks’ programming greatly appeals to educators and young people who are drawn into the visual stories our documentaries tell. We communicate regularly with teachers throughout the country through weekly e-newsletters, and each year we engage with teachers and students through webcasts and workshops. The Idea Book for Educators® reaches 600,000 teachers twice a year, offering fresh insights into the ways they can energize their classrooms.

Lifetime: Every Woman Counts®
First launched in 1992 and continued through every presidential election cycle, Every Woman Counts is dedicated to amplifying women’s voices in the political process, encouraging them to register to vote, speak out on the issues they care about and run for office. Working with media and nonprofit coalitions, the campaign activates women across the country and provides a forum to highlight the issues women care about most, including child care, pay equity and women’s health. The campaign also includes extensive information online, women’s events at both national conventions, contests for Lifetime’s audience, public service announcements, candidate trainings and voter turnout drives.


A&E: The Recovery Project
Inspired by the extraordinary response to our series Intervention®, A&E® created The Recovery Project to break the stigma of addiction and raise awareness that addiction is a treatable disease and that recovery is possible. Through The Recovery Project, A&E works with nonprofit organizations, government officials, and cable affiliates nationwide to give communities tools and resources related to addiction and recovery.
 
Mission to Honor: Take a Veteran to School Day
Through our Take a Veteran to School Day program, HISTORY helps connect veterans with local schools and communities nationwide. Take a Veteran to School began in one Connecticut school in 2007 and has grown to include over 10,000 schools in all 50 states. From the greatest generation to the latest generation, veterans have shared their stories and received the appreciation of all ages of students and community members. As part of this initiative, HISTORY provides free materials including lesson plans, how-to guides, and streaming video resources. A dedicated website, Veterans.com, allows easy access to resources and links to organizations that support veterans and their families.
 
BIO: Biography® Project for Schools
BIO.® works with the U.S. Conference of Mayors on the Biography Project for Schools, which provides teachers with a colorful educational manual and other tools to help them incorporate the study of important individuals into their classrooms and to help students explore the lives of those who have made an impact on our world. The BIO. Classroom website is an interactive resource with free educational materials designed to encourage the use of Biography® in the classroom. We feature a “Bio of the Month” lesson plan based on programs aired during the commercial-free BIO. Classroom hour, which airs each Tuesday at 7am/6c.
 
HISTORY en Español: Celebrating Hispanic Heritage
As the only member of the Cable in the Classroom Foundation to provide free Spanish-language teaching materials, HISTORY en Español™ takes its commitment to education and the Latino community very seriously.
