Goodyear Hope School Project

In Pulandian, China, Goodyear supports and collaborates with the Goodyear Hope School program. As of April 2017, there are two schools in the region, benefiting about 700 children and families. In addition to the company’s monetary support of the school, many Goodyear associates and their families have contributed further funding and volunteer services, such as English-language education.

STEM Career Day

Goodyear hosts its annual STEM Career Day to encourage local middle and high school students to pursue academic studies and careers in STEM fields. Hundreds of Goodyear associates volunteer their time to plan and supervise this event for the 1,800+ students who participate annually. 2017 marked the 19th year of this tradition for students in Northeast Ohio.

Goodyear 'Builds Together'

As part of the 2017 annual Goodyear Group Conference, Goodyear South Africa associates worked together to plan, design and paint building blocks for children in the Nelson Mandela Bay community. Volunteers worked with the Port Elizabeth Rotary Club to donate the learning tools to local schools.
