At Chaparral, we are as passionate about giving back to the communities we call home as we are about finding and producing oil and gas. That's why we offer paid time off to ensure our employees have an opportunity to contribute in their communities.

Whether it is volunteering at the local food pantry, constructing houses for those in need or lending their expertise as nonprofit board members or mentors at our partner school, Centennial Mid-High, our employee’s can-do attitude and desire to make real, lasting differences means we are always looking for a chance to lend a hand.

Shaping The Next Generation

In 2014, Chaparral began a partnership with our neighbor, Centennial Mid-High School. What began as a donation to provide needed supplies has grown to become a year-round support effort ranging from fundraising drives to volunteerism to guest speaking events.

Thanks to our employee’s passion, Chaparral is proud to say that our partnership continues to grow as we search for additional monetary and intangible ways to fuel the school’s and student’s long-term success.
