Summer is here and so is Camp Old Navy, a unique partnership between Old Navy and community partners.

As a MyY member myself, but also as the Store Manager at the Barrie Old Navy, I’m happy to share that this year Camp Old Navy is partnering with our local YMCA of Simcoe/Muskoka centre, MyY Barrie.

This one-day opportunity offers a fun, job readiness experience for youth. I feel it is our most enjoyable and rewarding day of the year as our staff “Sellebrities” and leaders do what they love by volunteering their time in order for youth to job shadow.

In past years, participating youth embrace the Old Navy culture while having a blast learning retail skills from our enthusiastic volunteers. I truly believe kids who learn to play, learn to succeed.

I am so proud to work for an organization like GAP Inc. It is our mission to create opportunities that unleash potential by the work we do to support our non-profit partners with our volunteers.

As we look forward to Camp Old Navy this July and meeting the YMCA youth who will join us, I hope there are more opportunities for community partnerships and storytelling with the YMCA, as I really believe they inspire individuals to reach their full potential.
