Job Shadows Give Teens Incentive to Graduate

by Step It Up, Inc.

Hey Nike Supporters,

Because of your generosity, two youth had a wonderful job shadow experience at Step It Up, Inc.'s 1st Annual National Job Shadow Day on February 2-3, 2012!

Both young men were thrilled to report back what they had learned about Nike, Inc. at the event celebration after all the youth returned from their job shadows at businesses all over the Portland metro area.

Please click on the video link below to hear what some of the teens had to say about this awesome experience!

Thank you again for connecting youth with real-life experiences at Nike, Inc.

Best, Linda
