ExxonMobil CSJP welcomes 75 new interns for summer of service
Jun '08
ExxonMobil kicked-off the 18th annual ExxonMobil Community Summer Jobs Program (CSJP) in Dallas during a reception at the Dallas Arboretum. The program, now in its 37th year nationally, pairs 75 undergraduate college students with local nonprofits for a paid internship.

Agencies receive the benefit of a talented staff member during the busy summer months, while students gain real world experience, learn more about the role of nonprofits in the community and earn a paycheck. ExxonMobil supports the program with a $237,000 grant, which funds the interns' salaries and expenses for administering the program.

“This is more than simply a summer job, but rather a unique experience,” said Truman Bell, senior program officer for education and diversity, ExxonMobil Foundation. “In addition to on-the-job skills, these 75 interns will also gain tools for professional development and valuable insight into the operations of some of the most respected nonprofit organizations in the Dallas community.

“We hope that this is only the beginning of a lifetime of service for these young people. Whether they make a career in the nonprofit world or become active volunteers, understanding the important role these agencies play in our community is one the key goals of our program.”

During the reception, two former CSJP summer interns who have pursued full-time careers in the nonprofit world were honored as the 2008 ExxonMobil Community Champions. Betsy Edmond and Christian Yazdanpanah, who participated in the program in 2003, were recognized for their outstanding work and ongoing dedication to the nonprofit community.
