Career Exploration with Free People
Free People held another amazing career exploration workshop last month for our middle school participants, led by Girls Inc. alumna and Free People employee Caelyn Owens! Through this workshop the girls were able to learn more about Free People and several departments including social media, marketing, Care FP, and FP Mart. The awesome Free People volunteers shared how the organization is working towards sustainability, expanding inclusiveness in clothing and marketing, as well as how they support small businesses.
