This Way ONward

This Way ONward provides underserved young people with the skills they need to succeed in the workforce, changing lives with first jobs. Youth have been hit disproportionately hard by the current unemployment crisis. While 16 to 29-year-olds make up under a quarter of the labor force, they accounted for about a third of the rise in the unemployment rate between February and April.2

Through This Way ONward, Old Navy has provided jobs and mentoring to 10,000 diverse youth from underserved communities, adding more than 800 new hires to the brand just this holiday season. With the support of customers, Old Navy has donated $1.8 million to the program thus far in 2020 and is on track to hire 20,000 youth by 2025.

“Because I have a job, because of the skills and encouragement I’ve gotten from This Way ONward, I can see the finish line,” said Gloire Yahve, This Way ONward alumna and current Old Navy associate. “I know I can do it. I will not give up. This Way ONward was my golden ticket.”

This Way ONward is part of Old Navy’s cause platform, The Imagine Mission, with the focus to provide a better future for future generations through the pillars of opportunity, inclusivity and sustainability. Learn more about Old Navy’s cause work at Oldnavy.com/Imagine.
