We support each other and our communities through charitable giving, volunteer activities, workforce training, and engagement in supplier diversity programs that inspire brighter futures and offer greater opportunities for the people around us.
GIVING BACK, BUILDING BETTER
Charitable Giving and Volunteerism
Across our family of companies, we are proud to support inclusive and diverse organizations that benefit communities. Diversity, equity, and inclusion are fundamental values throughout Centuri’s workplace environment, and those values extend to the philanthropic initiatives that we are proud to support in the communities where we live and work.
Partnering with our clients, academic institutions, and community organizations, we invest heavily in skill and career training opportunities across our operating areas. Our focus on workforce development in the critical utility infrastructure space benefits our employees, communities, and industry.
Job Corps Natural Gas Pipeline Academy
Job Corps helps eligible young people complete their high school education, train for meaningful careers, and find employment – all while providing housing, food, and transportation – at no cost to students.

On the foundation of this success, plans are in motion to replicate the program in additional locations across the U.S.
