More than 300 volunteers rolled up their sleeves
to rebuild the aging John F. Kennedy Park into a safe
and beautiful outdoor space for people of all ages.
The rebuilt park features new landscaping and an
outdoor STEM Learning Center and Community
Plaza, as well as a picnic pavilion for residents to
enjoy. This renovation was made possible through a
partnership with the City of Richmond and The Trust
for Public Land. And Chevron provided funding for
the STEM Learning Center and Community Plaza.
Más de 300 voluntarios se remangaron las camisas para
reconstruir el debilitado parque John F. Kennedy y convertirlo en
un hermoso espacio al aire libre para gente de todas las edades.
El parque renovado tiene nuevos jardines, un Centro de
aprendizaje STEM (ciencia, tecnología, ingeniería y matemáticas)
y una Plaza comunitaria al aire libre, así como un kiosco para
picnics que pueden disfrutar todos los residentes. Esta renovación
se hizo posible a través de una asociación con la Ciudad de
Richmond y el Fideicomiso para terrenos públicos. Chevron
proporcionó fondos para el Centro de aprendizaje STEM y la Plaza
comunitaria.
This event is just one example of the many ways that
we give back to Richmond. From our philanthropic
contributions that support nonprofits, to the time
our employees give to worthy causes, we are
committed to making investments in the community.
Este evento es solo un ejemplo de las muchas maneras que
colaboramos con la ciudad de Richmond. Desde nuestras
contribuciones filantrópicas hasta el apoyo a organizaciones sin
fines de lucro y el tiempo que nuestros empleados dedican a
causas valiosas, estamos comprometidos en hacer inversiones en
la comunidad que compartimos.
There is a great sense of progress and possibility in
Richmond. And we are proud to do our part to help
the city reach its greatest potential.

BREATHMOBILE
This year Chevron awarded $300,000 to
further the groundbreaking work of the
Breathmobile, a mobile respiratory clinic that
works in local schools to help address and
treat respiratory illness. The roving
Breathmobile®, which is part of the Family
Sustainability Project, provides free, ongoing
medical care to children and partners with
the Community Energy Services Corporation

problemas respiratorios que trabaja en
escuelas locales para ayudar a abordar y
tratar las enfermedades respiratorias. El
errabundo “Breathmobile®” forma parte del
Proyecto de sustentabilidad familiar, el cual
ofrece atención médica continua y gratuita a
los niños y se ha asociado con la Corporación

para trabajar con las familias a fin de eliminar
los desencadenantes del asma en sus
hogares, como el polvo y el moho. Los

han reducido las hospitalizaciones de niños
hasta en un 80%, haciendo posible que
tengan un mejor rendimiento en la escuela.
El Centro Latina recibió un contribución de

WORKING TOGETHER:
PARTNERSHIPS
FOR RICHMOND’S
SUCCESS
Since 2009, Chevron
has invested more than
$30 million to create
partnerships with nonprofit
organizations in Richmond
and West Contra Costa
County. Our investments
focus on economic
development, education,
civic/community and
youth/ public safety.
We are proud of our
commitment to create
opportunities to improve
the quality of life for
residents of all ages.
This infographic highlights
several key programs and
showcases how they are
benefiting Richmond
residents.

TEACH FOR AMERICA
Teach For America (TFA), a national
organization that recruits top college
graduates and trains them to teach youth
in low-income communities, received a
$100,000 grant to recruit teachers to serve
in Richmond and West County schools. The
contribution helps to ensure TFA teachers
have the instruction needed to make the
biggest impact possible on the lives of local
students. Chevron’s support also funds
programs that encourage teachers to stay in
Richmond, meaning more top-quality local
teachers who are invested in the long-term
success of the community.

nacional que recluta a los mejores graduados
universitarios y los capacita para enseñar a
jóvenes de comunidades de bajos ingresos,
recibió $100,000 para reclutar maestros para
las escuelas de Richmond y el Condado de
West. La contribución ayuda a que los
maestros de TFA cuenten con la instrucción
necesaria para ejercer la mejor influencia
posible en la vida de los estudiantes locales.
El apoyo de Chevron también financia
programas que animan a los maestros a
quedarse en Richmond, lo que significa que
se invierte en más excelentes maestros de la
localidad para el éxito de la comunidad a
largo plazo.
DISCOVER
ENGINEERING!
California State University East Bay’s
(CSUEB) Discover Engineering! Project
received a $150,000 grant to encourage
learning in STEM (science, technology,
engineering and math) fields. This funding
will allow 35 students from local high schools

summer camp at the CSUEB campus. This
project helps increase student exposure to
engineering as an attractive career option
and facilitate the transition to an engineering
(or other STEM-related) college program.
DESCUBRE LA
INGENIERÍA! (DISCOVER

El programa, ¡Descubre la ingeniería! de la
Universidad del Estado de California East Bay
(CSUEB), recibió un apoyo de $150,000 para
fomentar el aprendizaje en los campos de
STEM (ciencia, tecnología, ingeniería y
matemáticas). Estos fondos permitirán a 35
alumnos de escuelas secundarias de la
localidad participar en un campamento de
verano de ingeniería de cinco días en el

Tell us about your job at Chevron
As a metocean specialist (the physical environment near
an offshore platform), I am responsible for understanding
the wind, waves and current patterns in the oceans where
Chevron wants to install and operate offshore facilities.
Our work is a key step in ensuring that facilities will operate
safely and survive severe storms.
What’s your favorite part of your job?
Unraveling the mysteries that Mother Nature throws at us.
I used to spend a fair amount of time on the ocean — the Gulf
of Mexico, the Gulf of Thailand, Africa, the Artic — which was
great too.
What’s your favorite part about working at Chevron?
The people. The team is what first attracted me to Chevron,
and they are what has kept me here for 26 years.
You do a lot in the Richmond community. Tell us about
your volunteer work.
I am on the advisory board of the Engineering Partnership
Academy at Richmond High School and I am also on the West
Contra Costa Unified School District’s advisory board. I started
and continue to run the “eBike Competition”.
Tell us a little bit about the eBike Competition.
About five years ago, we were looking for ways to effectively
mentor kids at Richmond High. We decided to create a
competition where the students could plan, build and test
their own electronic bicycles. The program uses a projectbased method to reinforce basic science, technology,
engineering and math (STEM) skills learned in their regular
class. The competition started out with 20 students and
now has grown to over 50. Students keep coming back year
after year.
Why is supporting STEM education in local schools an
important mission for Chevron?
We need to encourage diversity in engineering and science
in general and increase diversity in our professional ranks.
A quality STEM education is critical because it helps prepare
students for well-paid careers in growing fields.
What advice would you give to students and residents in
Richmond?
Feed your curiosity, try to learn as much as you can, and work
hard.
What’s a misperception about Chevron that you want to
clarify?
That we don’t care about the environment. That’s definitely
not the case. We spend an enormous amount of resources on
safety and the environment because we care.
