The Sol & Friends Scholarship-Mentorship Program (S&F Program) is a collaborative effort between Sol Petroleum Bahamas Limited, the Bahamas Technical & Vocational Institute (BTVI) and local entrepreneurs. Mentors, comprising of Sol Petroleum Bahamas team members, dealers and contracters all receive the required mentorship training, which equips them with the necessary skills to provide on-going support to scholarship recipients.
This scholarship and mentorship program provides learning opportunities which enables less economically and educationally advantaged individuals to be globally competitive and economically independent. They are provided with two year scholarships to the Bahamas Technical and Vocational Institute to enhance their skill set.
The Sol Petroleum Bahamas team was able to optimize on-site live radio remotes as well as a robust schedule of live radio interviews to promote the program at the recent launch of brand awareness campaign “You’ve Got ESSO in Your Tank”. The program raised enough funds to provide twelve two-year scholarships to BTVI, where 20% of the scholarships received were issued to Esso service station employees.
The S&F Program received recognition from the Bahamas Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Investment which maximises Sol’s brand presence, creates long term impacts and provides lasting benefits to the communities we serve.
