Being a Mars Associate isn't confined to the workplace – our team members are impacting the world everywhere they go. Each year, our Associates donate more than 1,000 hours of community service to help reinvigorate the communities in which they live and work. Beyond their own communities, we support our value-chain locations by promoting human rights, empowerment and poverty alleviation. The benefits of being a Mars Associate surpass the tangible, including the opportunity to do rewarding work that really does make a difference.

Mars Ambassador Program

Mars wants to give our Associates every opportunity to grow beyond what they can possibly imagine. That’s why we offer the Mars Ambassador Program – MAP. This program sends Associates abroad to lend their expertise to organizations and communities across our value chain. MAP also connects Associates with communities that can enable them to learn about the issues Mars faces as a business and grow them as leaders

Mars Volunteer Program

At Mars, we have many development opportunities that empower us to learn, build, dream, and develop our future - for the company,for the community and for ourselves.One of those unique opportunities is the Mars Volunteer Program – MVP. Every Associate is given up to two days off each year to put our Five Principles in Action by volunteering. Most Associates give back at local organizations near their jobsite and in their own community. When we help others thrive, our whole selves can thrive.
