Thankful Thursday: Chevron

Chevron has been a huge supporter of City Year San Jose/Silicon Valley’s service to the San Jose community over the years.

Not only have they sponsored three Starry Starry Night events and two graduation ceremonies, they have also sponsored teams of corps members who served the San Jose community on the Civic Engagement Team in 2007 and a team that served George LeyVa Middle School in 2008.

In 2010, Chevron brought the entire corps and staff to Pebble Beach to watch practice rounds of the US Open. Not only did they provide us with tickets to the event, but they provided transportation, breakfast and lunch for everyone.

Corps Member Nick Hedrick was selected to give the corps speech at the 2010 graduation ceremony that was sponsored by Chevron.

Chevron is a Platinum Sponsor of Starry Starry Night 2011. They are a generous sponsor of this year’s event; helping City Year engage the San Jose community in celebrating the diverse young leaders who have dedicated a year to providing 1:1 tutoring in math and literacy and free after school programming for more than 2,500 Alum Rock Students.

If you are impressed by Chevron’s commitment to City Year’s mission of keeping kids in school and on track to graduate, you should check out what else they have done for the community, nation and world at large. Visit for more information.
