December 8th, 2021

OAKLAND, Calif. -- The Oakland A’s Community Fund and Chevron have announced a $40,000 grant to East Oakland Youth Development Center (EOYDC). The donation will support the general operation expenses of EOYDC’s Pathway to College and Careers (PTC2) program budget, specifically helping 25 high school students tour colleges across the United States and providing job skill training, mentorship and scholarships to more than 250 students.

“A strong company culture requires us to act on what we believe. We create, sustain and expand social programs that enable our communities to reach their full potential. We do this because our business succeeds best when the people we work with and the communities in which we operate succeed, too,” said Rhonda Morris, VP and Chief Human Resources Officer at Chevron.

Chevron is committed to creating innovative education programs that position the next generation to tackle the most complex challenges of our future. Through this commitment, the Chevron STEM Zone was brought to life through various exhibits that bring excitement and engagement to science, technology, engineering and math through real-world applications.

“Chevron is proud to partner with the Oakland A’s to inspire the next generation of problem solvers through STEM education and the Oakland A's Community Fund. By bringing the Chevron STEM Zone to the recent A’s game, and partnering together on this East Oakland Youth Develop Center grant, our hope is that students can create a better future for themselves and do great things that benefit us all,” said Paige Millard, Partnership Marketing Specialist at Chevron.

On September 24th, the A’s and Chevron brought the Chevron STEM Zone to the fans, giving the youth the opportunity to engage in STEM related activities in a fun and exciting way.

Chevron is a Founding Partner of the Oakland A’s Community Fund.
