Metallica's All Within My Hands & Carhartt - Hard Rock is Hard Work

Met_OutsideHQ_0324_HQ_Herring__Herring3000-768x1024

Metallica + Carharrtt have been working on something special for this Labor Day. All sales from Carharrt.com will be donated to Metallica's All Within My Hands' (AWMH) Metallica Scholars Program This event on Labor Day is a powerful way to quickly fund the All Within My Hands' (AWMH) Metallica Scholars Program. AWMH has provided $1.5 million in scholarships (and matching funds $$ from partners) to various community colleges around the country to encourage people to learn the critical trades that keep this country going. After the first year, the Metallica Scholars Initiative demonstrated extraordinary results including job placement rates exceeding 90%. 

This Labor Day, September 6, ALL SALES on Carhartt.com will be donated to the Metallica Scholars Program

In 2021 AWMH expanded their nationwide Scholars program to include 23 community colleges (up from 15 in 2020 and 10 in 2019) and plan to donate $1.6 Million. These scholarships will directly support people interested in learning the trades & filling essential jobs as skilled workers. Since 2019, The Metallica Scholars program has served over 1,000 students at community colleges across the US.

As one of the biggest touring acts of all time, Metallica knows that stage crews and skilled trades-people are the backbone of the live events industry.

40 years ago, Metallica was founded when James Hetfield answered Lars Ulrich's classified ad and ended up with a career that changed his life. This Labor Day, Carhartt and Metallica's All Within My Hands Foundation recreate that 1981 ad to recruit a new generation of passionate job seekers looking to learn the skills that could change their lives.

"To build the workforce of the future, we need to connect more people to the training and education that helps fill essential jobs. With our partnership, we're sending the message that whether you're in high school looking for a first step, or out of work looking for a new start: come join the skilled trades." - Janet Ries, Vice President of Marketing at Carhartt

"Carhartt and All Within My Hands are bound by our shared passion for supporting workforce education. As two organizations dedicated to providing opportunity, we hope to expand the Metallica Scholars program to include even more schools this year, and to get even more students trained for a career in the skilled trades."- Dr. Edward Frank, Executive Director at All Within My Hands Foundation
