IRVING, Texas--(Business Wire)--
The ExxonMobil Foundation announced today that 30 Dallas County nonprofit
agencies will participate in the 2013 ExxonMobil Community Summer Jobs Program. 

"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.
