The purpose of the Fuel Your School program is to help support and improve critical education programming and materials, particularly in the STEM subjects – science, technology, engineering and math – to help prepare students for the growing number of technical jobs in the modern economy, including possible engineering positions at Chevron.“Teachers spend on average more than $350 of their own money every year on materials for their students,” said Charles Best, CEO of DonorsChoose.org. “Chevron is quick to respond to this incredible demand and as a result, the Fuel Your School program has grown to impact nearly 700,000 students across nine U.S. markets this year.” Since its inception in 2010, Fuel Your School has benefitted 8,915 classroom projects at 1,924 schools. The program has grown each year to support students in communities where the company has significant business operations. Chevron works with local communities, governments and non-profit organizations to help increase learning opportunities for students and support the development of the social and economic vitality of each community. Over the past three years, Chevron has contributed nearly $100 million for education in the U.S. An infographic showing the impact of the 2012 Fuel Your School program and top most requested STEM resources for classrooms is available at http://www.fuelyourschool.com.
