A coalition of industry partners that have joined forces with Discovery Education to impact the culture of STEM education in K – 12 schools nationwide, the STEM Careers Coalition offers no-cost digital learning resources for educators, parents, students and employees to foster equity and access to quality education, and build the next generation of solution-seekers at no-cost to schools.? Chevron is one of the anchor partners supporting the initiative.
Chevron believes in the power of humanity to solve any challenge, to overcome any obstacle, and to find responsible solutions that work for everyone. Because the company understands that the well-being of people everywhere depends on affordable, reliable and ever-cleaner energy, people are at the center of the energy conversation. At the heart of The Chevron Way is the vision to be the global energy company most admired for its people, partnership and performance. Chevron’s foundation is built on a set of values that distinguish and guide company actions to deliver results. Conducting business in a socially and environmentally responsible manner, respecting the law and universal human rights are cornerstones to benefitting the communities Chevron serves.
As an anchor partner in the Coalition, Chevron contributes to the ultimate goal of preparing a generation for the future of work through direct investment in schools by catalyzing and engaging in regional approaches to workforce development and creating connected pathways for students through K-12 and the STEM workforce. In addition to providing no-cost STEM experiences and career resources to schools nationwide, Coalition members also underwrite Discovery Education STEM Connect in local communities.

As part of the no-cost resources available through the Coalition, Chevron employees help expose students to STEM careers through expansion of the STEM Careers Portal. Through in-depth career videos, profiles and career-related activities, students are exposed to the many different avenues pursuit of a STEM career could take in the energy industry.? These profiles provide a real-world connection that can ignite interest in STEM careers for the future.
In two of the newest profiles now available, we meet Kaylin Buscovich, an Operations Supervisor and Matt Hole, a Design Engineer.? Flexible for use as part of a digital lesson plan or at home, students can watch the short career videos, review the career profiles and then reflect on their interest in the career with the student activation. As a result of this process, students are not only exposed to a new career, but can consider the immediate next steps they could take to learn more or even begin preparing for the career opportunity.
