In 2014, Gap Inc. committed to taking on four areas of activity to equip underserved youth with the skills they need to get on pathways to success: 1) expand This Way Ahead to an additional city; 2) enhance job training, mentoring, and in-kind support to non-profits that provide youth with workplace skills; 3) recruit 3-5 additional companies to join OYN; and 4) raise awareness among customers and the general public around the importance of first jobs, and the role that employers can play to support underserved youth.
