“The Teen Board” Pre-Media FundraiserSouth Florida Teens & Tweens make a difference in their community
Miami, Florida– June 11th 2010 – “The Teen Board”, is back and revamped! Opening their doors to South Florida’s trendsetting young teens and tweens. The original Florida Teen Board was established in the early 1980’s by “Jordan Marsh” and “Burdines” department store to provide young teens (boys and girls) with the opportunity to showcase their talents by doing fashion shows and special events at local shopping malls, specialty stores, and community organizations. Many of the original members have built very successful businesses in South Florida. These businesses continue to give back to the community that helped get them their start.
Today’s Teen Board has been re-focused and re-vamped into a non-for-profit foundation where teens from all areas and personal backgrounds model for their own personal cause. Every one of the models on The Teen Board has their own personal stories to share. Some of them have traumatic stories, which they use to empower and encourage others who have been through similar challenges. The Teen Board models use their personal experiences to help and provide an emotional shelter for the teens and tweens in their communities. It is The Teen Board’s mission to be committed to partnering with all schools, associations, and community leadership to create and sustain a diverse and inclusive culture while being advocates for positive change in the schools, promoting activities and events that will bolster their internal reputation. One of their partnerships is with the South Florida After-School All Stars (SFASAS), a local chapter of the leading national organization that provides year-round, school-based, after-school programs, including academics, health and fitness to middle-school aged students.www.TheTeenBoard.com
