We invest in targeted programs that address the specific health needs of the community and encourage healthier lifestyles.
We contribute to training health workers and providing early childhood support services.
In Canada, Chevron supports a number of programs including:
Chevron Tooth Trolley
The Chevron Tooth Trolley is a creative dentistry program that provides an important, and fun, dental health service to school-aged children in Vancouver and Burnaby, British Columbia. The Chevron Tooth Trolley picks up children and their parents from their local schools, and takes them to the Vancouver Community College (VCC) dental clinic, where they receive free teeth cleaning and check-ups while also learning about the importance of dental hygiene. The program also provides a fun and valuable learning experience for VCC dental students, as they provide dental services to approximately 250 local children throughout the course of the Tooth Trolley week.
Calgary Flames, Flames Foundation for Life
Chevron has partnered with the Calgary Flames hockey team to support the Flames Foundation for Life to promote wellness and encourage healthy habits in children. Together, Chevron and the Calgary Flames aim to make Calgary the healthiest city in North America. Our first step is to work with Calgary students in grades one through nine, teaching healthy behaviors in a fun and life changing way.
In partnership with Chevron Canada, the Flames @School program engages kids in activities both in and after school. Games, posters, reading, and healthy activities and food are all part of the program. Classrooms can compete against one another for a chance to win sports equipment for their school.
Friends of Fox Creek Hospital Society and Fox Creek Hospital
Chevron is helping to improve regional health care by providing training opportunities in Non-Violent Crisis Intervention, Advanced Cardiac Life Support, Emergency Nursing Pediatric Care and Trauma Nurse Core Certification. Chevron Canada has also provided a donation to the Hospital for facility upgrades.
Chevron Canada has partnered with the Terrace District Community Social Services (TDCSS) to launch a youth drop-in centre as part of TDCSS’ youth engagement strategy. In addition to a warm, safe place for youth to gather, TDCSS offers homework assistance, nutritious and budget-friendly cooking classes and hosts a popular movie night…complete with popcorn! Most importantly, the centre provides youth the opportunity to connect with other TDCSS health and social service programs.
