San Francisco Mayor's Summer Jobs+ Program

In July 2013, we opened our new corporate office in San Francisco to serve as a progressive technology center for American Eagle Outfitters engineers, designers and digital marketing teams. To celebrate our new hometown, we joined San Francisco Mayor Edwin Lee's Summer Jobs+ campaign, which aimed to create 6,000 jobs and paid internships for area youths. To support Mayor Lee's goal, American Eagle Outfitters hired about a dozen youths to serve as summer interns for skill building and career mentoring through Jobs+. The Summer Jobs+ campaign created community partnership and gave young people in San Francisco the opportunity and access to dream big.
