Recreation is much more than sports. Through NORD’s career-focused teen programs, middle and high school students explore potential careers and learn to network.
At 13 Teen Career Summer Camps, 1,000 participants each create a résumé and cover letter while learning about jobs in a field of interest. Teen Council members produce events like talent shows and a Mardi Gras Ball, and recruit their peers for community service projects. Chevron Future Leaders meet industry chiefs, learn about finance, practice business etiquette and benefit from mentoring by Chevron employees.
Every chance for professional success is a win for our community.
