Arctic Directory: ExxonMobil grants $500K to Teach for America

ExxonMobil said Jan. 6 that its $500,000 grant to Teach for America will be used to recruit more than 1,500 top college graduates from across the United States to teach middle-school math and science. The funds will also support Teach for America’s rigorous program of pre-service training, ongoing professional development and mentoring for these teachers. “Improving the quality of math and science education in America’s classrooms is a primary focus for ExxonMobil because we believe that education is the key to progress, development and economic growth,” said Gerald McElvy, president of ExxonMobil Foundation. ExxonMobil has supported Teach for America for 16 years, and in 2009 invested more than $90 million in education initiatives worldwide. For more information visit www.exxonmobil.com/community.
