The ExxonMobil Foundation announced today that 30 Dallas County nonprofit agencies will participate in the 2013 ExxonMobil Community Summer Jobs Program.
“The Community Summer Jobs Program opens doors in the workforce for students while also making a positive impact in our community,” said Suzanne McCarron, president of the ExxonMobil Foundation.
The program provides much-needed assistance to nonprofit agencies and helps college students gain valuable work experience and a better understanding of the important role of nonprofit organizations.
Paid summer internship positions involve students in a range of activities, such as coordinating housing for area residents to implementing summer programs for underprivileged children. In addition to daily internship duties, students also work on a group service project. Qualified college students interested in gaining hands-on experience in the nonprofit sector this summer are encouraged to apply.To be eligible, applicants must be current undergraduate students returning to college as a full-time (minimum 12 credit hours per semester) sophomore, junior or senior in the fall of 2013. Interested students may contact the selected agencies, listed below, to request applications and learn more about available opportunities. Information is also available at csjpdallas.org. Since 1990, the ExxonMobil Foundation has contributed more than $3.7 million to fund the program in Dallas, subsidizing 1,565 internships and benefitting more than 300 agencies. Since the program began in 1971 in New York City, the ExxonMobil Foundation has provided more than $17.5 million to support nearly 5,000 community summer job internships.
