Board Programs were first started by Rainbow Promotions in East Coast
regional malls in 1990. This youth oriented, volunteer program, now in
its fifteenth year, provides an opportunity for young men and women between
the ages of thirteen to eighteen years, to represent and work with their
local malls to produce fashion shows, create special events and participate
in community service projects.
The educational component of this program offers teen members the
opportunity to participated in lectures, workshops and activities dealing
with the various aspects of the fashion and retail industry- modeling,
retail operations, fashion design, marketing and public relations.
Community service is a core component of this program. The Teen
Boards are committed to helping others with in their own community. Through
out the year, our members become involved with a number of charitable
organizations in an effort to show that teens can make a difference.
the addition of the Music & Motion Dance program in 2000, members
with a background in the performing arts now have an opportunity to use
the arts and dance to build self-esteem and inspire creative self-expression
and community action.
The programs have been a huge success. For the teen members in the program,
it has offered them a voice in their communities, a way to contribute
their energies in a positive manner, a better understanding and respect
of each others diverse backgrounds, and a way to increase their own sense
of self-worth and self-esteem through the positive impact they have on
their own community.
For the malls, developers, retailers and individual merchants who work
with our program, it has been a unparalleled relationship that offers
assistance in the development marketing programs, the creation of new
opportunities through special events, an invaluable source of information
through small directed focus groups, and a unique approach to interfacing
with the community they serve.
Currently Rainbow Promotions operates four Teen Board programs as
well as Music and Motion Dance. To learn more about the individual
