Fashion Design Intern
Our initiative is to hire unemployed and underemployed workers to design products that help improve the lives of everyday people. Within each handmade JacPac product, we include the name of the seamstress who manufactured it while using sustainable products to ensure our environmental impact is limited. In addition, we pay fair wages and offer job opportunities to all partners involved to help create a micro-business opportunity for entrepreneurs.
Our long-term mission is to help reduce our national jobless rate to historic lows through our 100 job campaign efforts! We believe that with your help, we can save our country’s retirement trust fund and Social Security, just by making a pledge to help promote or even contribute to our upcoming campaign. Join our team so that we can achieve this goal. #100Jobs!
