ExxonMobil Community Summer Jobs Program (CSJP)

The ExxonMobil CSJP provides assistance to nonprofit agencies and enables college students to gain valuable work experience and a better understanding of the important role of nonprofit organizations.

Due to the ongoing uncertainty of COVID-19, the Community Summer Jobs Program is being suspended this year for the health and safety of our CSJP nonprofit partners and students. We appreciate your understanding while we navigate these unique circumstances. We hope to re-start CSJP in 2022.

Past Interns on Their Experience at Center for BrainHealth

I really can’t imagine spending my summer anywhere other than at the Center for BrainHealth. I learned so much and was constantly being poured into by the people around me, especially my two supervisors. I made relationships and friendships during my internship that I’ll always cherish, and I gained valuable experience that I’ll be able to use in the future. I can’t say enough good things about this place and these people- it was my favorite internship I’ve ever done!”

Caitlyn C., 2019 ExxonMobil Community Summer Jobs Program Intern

I couldn’t have asked for a better or more inspiring, diverse team to work with this summer. I was exposed to projects in marketing, workplace engagement, brand management, community relations, event planning and much more. I truly valued being able to dip my foot in all of these specialties and feel that by learning the programs, techniques and skills required of each task, I was able to become a well-rounded individual in the professional sphere. I can now confidently say that I am a better communicator and leader.”

Natalie M., 2017 ExxonMobil Community Summer Jobs Program Intern

“The people I worked with [at the Center for BrainHealth] made the internship experience unlike any I have had before! They were always open, honest, and willing to help me in any way if I didn’t know how to do something. After my summer internship, I was able to continue to intern for the Center for BrainHealth and grow with the organization.”
