A true legacy partner, Gap Inc. brands have supported Boys & Girls Clubs for more than 15 years! Old Navy’s partnership combines in-store donation drives with local community involvement and volunteerism aimed at helping youth dream big.
ONward! Taking the next generation to the next level.
Old Navy’s ONward! platform empowers the next generation with the real-world skills, training and jobs to make a difference in our communities and blaze a path forward to a brighter future. Their partnership with BGCA focuses on programs and activities that promote character development and leadership in meaningful and fun ways for thousands of youth across the country.
Hundreds of Old Navy stores partner with their local Boys & Girls Club throughout the year, providing invaluable volunteer hours, in addition to running a program called O.N. the Job: the brand’s signature in-store job shadowing program that introduces youth to the skills it takes to have a career in the retail industry. Always a popular experience for Club youth, O.N. the Job provides a hands-on opportunity for youth ages 15-18 to learn about things such as how to display merchandise, manage a stock room, run the cash register and provide excellent customer service to shoppers.
During the “Back2School” shopping season, Old Navy stores nationwide hosted an in-store donation drive benefitting BGCA. Through a match of customer donations, these campaigns have historically raised $1 million or more each year to directly support BGCA’s mission and programs. In 2017, Old Navy’s back-to-school campaign celebrated teachers and encouraged them to unleash their inner rock stars with an inspiring series of original songs and music videos.
