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.


Volunteering Opportunities for Science Fairs:

Contra Costa County Science & Engineering Fair - March 8.

HELP! Contra Costa County Science & Engineering Fair—IN-PERSON in 2024—is scheduled for Friday, March 8 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Los Medanos College in Pittsburg and we need your help!

Without your involvement, further competitions would not be available to our student competitors in the county. Students need to go through their County Science Fair to be able to compete at the California Science Fair, the National Middle School Science Fair, and the International Science Fair.

In existence since 2005, the Contra Costa Science Fair expects to have about 200 student competitors who will need your expertise to evaluate project boards and conduct interviews.

The fair will require each judge volunteer to give a full 8 hours of time to ensure every student(s) project has access to multiple interviews. Won t you volunteer to be a judge on March 8?

Judges choose among the six competition categories:

There are two student competition levels: JUNIOR: Grades 7 and 8; and SENIOR: Grades 9 through 12. You may choose the competition level most suited to your preferences.

Several Chevron employees and retirees volunteer for this regularly and we always need more judges.  Brad McCullough has volunteered since before he retired and says it is a lot of fun and an incredible learning experience - these students are incredible!

Hiking Group

We are looking for the sunny skies and brisk air in the mornings for our hikes, but they are few and far between, and we ve been trying to avoid muddy trails.  We have hikes from Easy to Difficult so there s something for every interest.  Our upcoming dates are Feb. 24 (Berkeley Stairs) and Feb. 29 (tbd). Contact us through cracocoevents@gmail.com for more info and to get on the Hiking Group Mailing List.

CGCSR Golf

Chevron Golf Club San Ramon (CGCSR) is an NCGA Affiliate Club that has as its base Chevron employees, contractors, and retirees. The club has about 60 members with indexes ranging from 4 to 34. We plan to run 24+ outings this year, where the club officers arrange for tee times. At these outings, we have an optional small game going (net or skins), closest to the pin prizes on 2 holes, a season-long match play, a club championship (net and gross winners) and a special end-of-year tournament. Most outings are on Friday or Saturday. We play a wide variety of courses, mostly East Bay, North Bay and Tri-Valley, and this year are adding rounds in Santa Rosa and Sacrament, plus a long weekend in Monterey.  The NCGA affiliation means that you get an official NCGA handicap and have the opportunity to represent CGCSR in NCGA tournaments (partially subsidized by the club). For 2024, mem­bership is only $85. For more information, contact cgcsanramon@gmail.com.

Chevron Retirees Association website

Take a look at the CRA website (www.chevronretirees.org).  There are lots of great pictures out there of retirees having fun, good benefits information, links to Benefit Hub and Chevron Humankind, information on the Chevron Advocacy Network, etc.  There is also work underway to update the CRA website to make it more enjoyable for everyone – stay tuned.
