Old Navy is putting the future first.

For the last 15 years, Camp Old Navy has invested in summer programs for underserved youth, helping them get ready for the school year and giving them their first job experience in Old Navy stores.

As part of this year’s program, Camp Old Navy is partnering with the Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) to support young people in communities across the nation.

“Our ongoing partnership with (programs like the Boys & Girls Clubs) underscores our strong belief that everyone should have an opportunity to succeed, whatever their circumstance may be,” said Ivan Wicksteed, CMO of Old Navy. “We are very proud of the work that we have done together over the years.”

But it’s not just about money. Beyond a donation drive, North American Old Navy employees are doing more by volunteering with local Boys & Girls Clubs locations, providing fun summer education opportunities and “job shadow” days. It provides a behind-the-scenes look at the world of retail and a chance to build skills for that first job.

“We are grateful for Old Navy’s partnership on Camp Old Navy,” said Jim Clark, president and CEO of BGCA, “and their continued commitment to supporting successful futures for young people.”
