If people and communities are to thrive, education and job training are of critical importance. A workforce armed with the skills needed to succeed in the jobs of tomorrow is important not only to the success of our business, but also to a country’s ability to compete in the global marketplace. We focus on improving instruction in the key subjects of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) and on helping provide the career and technical training that can lead directly to well-paying jobs.
Working with our partners, we take a comprehensive approach to investments in education by getting students excited about STEM and encouraging them to pursue STEM courses and, ultimately, STEM careers. We support educational standards and proven curricula that promote project- and problem-based learning. We also support teacher training, provide classroom resources, fund outside-of-school activities, and form partnerships with universities designed to strengthen faculty, curricula and student development. In addition to helping the communities where we operate, these investments help us. Tomorrow’s Chevron engineers are today’s schoolchildren.
