Volunteering Opportunities


A list describing the many great opportunities to volunteer with Chevron Humankind and to participate in events of interest put on by the Employee Networks can be found in the current Newsletter.


The pandemic is still shutting down a lot of our normal avenues for volunteering. Here are a few that I would like to
highlight that are looking for volunteers:

Bay Area Crisis Nursery: Many of you probably volunteered through Chevron Humankind at BACN as the relationship
between Chevron and BACN has been going on a long time. BACN is looking for someone to join their
Board of Directors. Here is a chance to use all those skills that you honed at Chevron to help a great Community
Partner. The Bay Area Crisis Nursery was established to help prevent child abuse and neglect by providing supportive
services to families. Their primary service is providing a warm, loving, homelike environment for children
from birth through 5 years of age by offering 24-hour care and emergency childcare services. Their services are
free, confidential, and voluntary. For more information on BACN go to their website - https://bayareacrisisnursery.
org/. For information about the Board Position, contact Tara Bartholomew, Executive Director - Tara@bayareacrisisnursery.

EnCorps: Last year, EnCorps STEM Fellows, all former industry professionals, impacted over 60,000 students by
becoming educators in high needs middle or high schools. This year, we want to further our impact in public education
by introducing a new virtual volunteer tutoring opportunity. We are piloting a STEMx Math Tutoring program
where students would be paired with a tutor for 2 one on one sessions a week. Our application for both programs,
and more info, can be found on our website: https://www.encorps.org/.

Richmond Promise: Launched in January 2016, the Richmond Promise is a community-wide college success
initiative to build a college graduating culture in Richmond, CA. The Richmond Promise was created with the belief
that all Richmond students should have the opportunity to develop their skills and reach their full potential, regardless
of race, income level, or personal background. Career Mentorship: This mentoring program is designed for
professionals to share knowledge, skills, best practices, and perspective to foster the personal and professional
growth of our Scholars. Time commitment is about one hour per month, and we are asking for at least a one-year
commitment beginning July 2020. https://richmondpromise.org/volunteer/

United Way of the Bay Area: In partnership with United Way Bay Area and SparkPoint Contra Costa, share best
practices when it comes to resumes and interviews! SparkPoint’s mission is to empower individuals and families
to become financially sustainable and advocates for social change. Resume Tips: Volunteers are matched one-toone
with attendees to edit, revise, and share a United Way Bay Area template resume. Volunteers are also asked
to share their professional resumes for examples of styles for various industries. Interview Practice: Volunteers will
share experiences with participants interested in their career field for a Q&A about interview best practices, career
paths, industry insights, and other topics. Attendees will come from the SparkPoint Contra Costa and Oakland
Havenscourt residences. This is on the Chevron Humankind website - https://chevronhumankind.com
