Giving Back

Giving Back

Paramount Pictures has a long and proud tradition of giving back.  Our corporate social responsibility program is focused on four key initiatives:  supporting public education; protecting the environment; combating HIV/AIDS; and promoting volunteerism.  By offering employee engagement opportunities, coupled with financial and in-kind contributions, Paramount supports numerous local, national, and global non-profit organizations.

HBHS | Season of Giving

The December session, held at the headquarters of Big Sunday, focused on giving back and supporting others. Students and mentors made sandwiches for residents and patrons of Covenant House, a nonprofit that has provided safe housing for homeless and runaway youth for over forty years. ​


LCMS | What’s Your Major?

Paramount employees answered questions about themselves and their careers, helping students guess their college majors. They provided great examples of how their interests, family priorities, and educational goals helped determine their career paths.


HBHS | Game of LIFE

Mentors and students played a jumbo sized game of LIFE.  Students were given careers and salaries and, with their mentors, had to make decisions about credit, buying a home and taxes!  It was a fun afternoon as the groups discussed the many options life can bring and how education and career choices can affect their life's path.


LCMS | Etiquette

Students and mentors enjoyed a formal lunch as they learned the basics of dining etiquette including appropriate table conversation and how best to respond to unexpected circumstances.  In the end they revived the often forgotten art of thank you letter writing by drafting notes to someone in their life they appreciate.


HBHS | What To Do After High School

Mentees heard from past graduates of the Helen Bernstein High School program about the choices they’ve made, the challenges they’ve faced and what they’ve learned since going through Paramount’s Kindergarten to Cap & Gown program.

HBHS | Debate Challenge

Students and mentors participated in a Debate Challenge.  As they argued opposite sides of current pop culture and political issues, they learned how to see different perspectives and discuss their views in a way that is both compelling and respectful. 


Electric Vehicle Charging Stations

In 2012, Paramount installed four electric vehicle charging stalls on the studio lot. These charging stations are available for use 24 hours a day/7 days a week and open to all Paramount Pictures’ employees and guests.

Why drive electric? Electric vehicles emit few to zero emissions while driving on battery power.
