volunteering

engaging the workforce in social causes

Chevron is committed to sharing human energy to support the communities where we operate prosper. Our people help us achieve this goal by volunteering some of their time to participate in social causes.

Solidary Energy is Chevron Brazil's volunteer program which began in 2011. It offers volunteers the opportunity to give back to society by sharing knowledge and skills with the beneficiaries of some of our social investment projects, our non-profit partners and other important stakeholders. 

 

“I participated in Chevron’s Solidarity Energy Program since day one. The efforts carried out over these years were quite positive, and were able to touch all participants. In my opinion, our volunteer program stands as one of the best ways to evoke the feeling of pride in the company we work for. This sort of campaign shows how Integrity and Diversity is present in our everyday lives!”
