Share:
  • Twenty Dallas County nonprofit agencies receive grants to hire
    talented interns
  • Paid internships provide much-needed summer assistance for local
    organizations
  • Participating students benefit from valuable experience and
    professional development

The ExxonMobil
Foundation
said today that it is providing $55,000 in grants to
nonprofit agencies in Dallas County as part of its Community
Summer Jobs Program
.

The program, entering its 29th-consecutive year, supports
local agencies' hiring of college students to help provide additional
assistance to those in need in area communities. The students, who
themselves will gain valuable work experience while learning about the
important roles nonprofits play, will serve in eight-week paid
internships.

"ExxonMobil's Community Summer Jobs Program is designed to strengthen
the ability of local nonprofit organizations to serve community members
in need," said Kevin Murphy, president of the ExxonMobil Foundation. "It
also provides college student interns with a rewarding experience that
teaches the value and importance of service."

ExxonMobil's program engages students in a broad range of activities
with nonprofit groups, from conducting vision tests for children and
evaluating treatment plans to bolstering social media and launching
marketing campaigns. In addition to daily internship duties, students
will participate in a group service project and benefit from
professional development over the course of time they spend with the
organization.

To qualify for the program, students must be enrolled undergraduates
returning to an accredited university full time in the fall.

This year, the students selected to participate range from sophomores to
seniors at universities across the country, including the University of
Chicago, University of Georgia, University of North Carolina at Chapel
Hill and the University of North Texas. The students' areas of study
include marketing, political science, sociology, biological science,
statistics and communication, among others.
