Chevron soccer academy goes online
In 2020, Chevron and the Open Goal Project took the Chevron Soccer Academy online to bring the drills, skills and fun of physical soccer camps to today’s socially-distanced environment. Since 2018, the program has been creating accessible soccer opportunities for youth in Kern, Fresno and Monterey Counties.
investing in tomorrow’s problem solvers
Preparing the next generation of problem solvers is essential to building a world where energy is affordable, reliable and ever-cleaner. Chevron aims to inspire the next generation of innovators who can tackle the complex challenges that we face. We do this by supporting science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education through numerous programs and strategic partnerships. We support local schools and other organizations to advance STEM education opportunities in Kern, Fresno and Monterey Counties.
Our Chevron Somos (Hispanic) Employee Network recently hosted a virtual STEM Night for families in Lost Hills. Our team created videos to demonstrate hands-on STEM projects using basic household items for families to explore at home.
We sponsored the Junior Achievement of Northern California’s S.H.E. Leads Virtual STEM Summit. The summit aimed to inspire female high-school students in Fresno and Monterey to pursue careers in STEM and build their professional network. Students explored a variety of STEM careers and curriculum and gained insights and encouragement from high profile speakers each day, including Josetta Jones, Chevron’s chief diversity and inclusion officer.
We support the Kern County Superintendent of Schools to support innovative programs that enable the next generation of problem solvers to tackle the challenges of today and tomorrow. Learn more about what we’re doing to support the successful learning and development of youth in Kern County.
We support the Fresno County Superintendent of Schools and their programs aimed at expanding educational opportunities and innovative STEM-based initiatives to children of all backgrounds.
As part of this year’s AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am Aces for Access program, we donated $200,000 to Monterey County nonprofits focused on bridging the digital divide in STEM education.
