IRVING, Texas -- March 24, 2014

The ExxonMobil Foundation today announced the 30 Dallas County nonprofit
agencies to receive grants through the 2014 ExxonMobil Community Summer Jobs
Program. The eight-week summer program provides assistance to nonprofit
agencies while enabling college students to gain valuable work experience and
a better understanding of the important role of nonprofit organizations.

“Nonprofit agencies provide vital community services, especially during the
summer when children are out of school,” said Suzanne McCarron, president of
the ExxonMobil Foundation. “In addition to helping these agencies realize
their mission, the Community Summer Jobs Program aims to foster college
students’ appreciation for the nonprofit sector, while also offering them
opportunities to develop their skills.”

Paid internship positions engage students in a broad range of activities, such
as coordinating camp programs for underprivileged children and developing
marketing campaigns. In addition to daily internship duties, students also
receive professional development and participate in a group service project.
Qualified college students interested in gaining hands-on experience in the
nonprofit sector 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 2014. Interested students may contact the
selected agencies, listed below, to request applications and learn more about
available opportunities, or visit csjpdallas.org.

Since 1990, the ExxonMobil Foundation has contributed nearly $4 million to
fund the program in Dallas, subsidizing nearly 1,600 internships and
benefitting more than 330 agencies.

Since the program began in 1971 in New York City, the ExxonMobil Foundation
has provided nearly $19 million to support more than 7,600 community summer
job internships across the country.
