“We are excited to offer students this one-of-a-kind experience in fashion and community service,” said Alexia Bratiotis, area marketing manager for The Summit. “The Teen Advisory Board will give these students an opportunity to meet and work with like-minded teens while gaining insights into the fashion and retail industry.”
Through the SummitUP board, teens can expect to become involved in numerous charitable activities with a variety of nonprofit organizations in an effort to show that teens can make a positive impact. They also will be a part of events such as Fashion Camp, Style 101, Lights Up, Personal Shopper program/events, fashion shows and community partnership events. Students who participate in the SummitUP Teen Board can receive credit toward community service hours needed for extra-curricular activities at school.
In order to apply for the board, students must be between the ages of 14 and 18, be in good standing at their school and must provide evidence through their application that they are dependable, creative, insightful and detailed. The application includes a 250-word essay and two letters of recommendation from individuals other than the students’ parents.
The SummitUP Teen Advisory Board is an 11-month commitment from October through August 2012. Applications must be received no later than 6 p.m. Sept. 16 at the guest services office at The Summit. To download an application, visit www.TheSummitOnline.com/reno/events-promotions.html.
