IRVING, Texas -- February 19, 2013

The ExxonMobil Foundation announced today that 30 Dallas County nonprofit
agencies will participate in the 2013 ExxonMobil Community Summer Jobs

“The Community Summer Jobs Program opens doors in the workforce for students
while also making a positive impact in our community,” said Suzanne McCarron,
president of the ExxonMobil Foundation.

The program provides much-needed assistance to nonprofit agencies and helps
college students gain valuable work experience and a better understanding of
the important role of nonprofit organizations.

Paid summer internship positions involve students in a range of activities,
such as coordinating housing for area residents to implementing summer
programs for underprivileged children. In addition to daily internship duties,
students also work on a group service project. Qualified college students
interested in gaining hands-on experience in the nonprofit sector this summer
are encouraged to apply.

To be eligible, applicants must be current undergraduate students returning to
college as a full-time (minimum 12 credit hours per semester) sophomore,
junior or senior in the fall of 2013. Interested students may contact the
selected agencies, listed below, to request applications and learn more about
available opportunities. Information is also available at csjpdallas.org.

Since 1990, the ExxonMobil Foundation has contributed more than $3.7 million
to fund the program in Dallas, subsidizing 1,565 internships and benefitting
more than 300 agencies.

Since the program began in 1971 in New York City, the ExxonMobil Foundation
has provided more than $17.5 million to support nearly 5,000 community summer
job internships.
