The ExxonMobil Green Team on 14th June kicked off its 29th year providing summer internships and educational opportunities for low to moderate income high school students. The Green Team is active in 10 cities across the country and is one of ExxonMobil’s signature community programs.
During the summer, students work on a range of beatification and environmental projects to benefit their communities. The Green Team takes on meaningful projects that offer hands on experience and leave a lasting impact, everything from water conservation research to trail building and maintenance in national parks. The Green Team also includes a classroom component designed to enhance awareness of the important relationship between education and work and encourage students to finish high school and pursue higher education.
ExxonMobil has invested US$ 19.4 million in the program nationally since its inception in 1981, reaching nearly 7700 students.
‘For nearly 30 years, we’ve had the honour of investing in high school students and their work in communities across the country,’ said Robert Lanyon, corporate citizenship and community investments manager for ExxonMobil. ‘We hope the Green Ream students will walk away from this experience with a sense of pride in their accomplishments and the confidence to achieve their goals.’
