Exxon Mobil Corp. recently announced it has received a 2011-2012 Silver U.S. President’s Volunteer Service Award from Junior Achievement USA® for providing the organization with significant volunteer resources during the year. ExxonMobil provided Junior Achievement with more than 10,000 volunteer hours.
“Through innovative partnerships between businesses, educators and volunteers, we can prepare young people to enter the workforce and succeed in a global economy,” said Alan Kelly, president of ExxonMobil Fuels & Lubricants, who received the award on behalf of the company. “This award honors the commitment of hundreds of ExxonMobil employees around the world who volunteer with Junior Achievement and share their experiences at schools in their communities.”
President George W. Bush established the President’s Council on Service and Civic Participation in 2003 to recognize the contributions volunteers make in communities and encourage more people to serve. The council created the President’s Volunteer Service Award program as a way to thank and honor Americans who, by their demonstrated commitment and example, inspire others to engage in volunteer service.
