If I am accepted as a YMA Scholar, what can I expect for my summer in New York City? Excited Anticipation, Arlene E.
Arlene, you are in for a treat. Our summer intern program is filled with opportunity and excitement. Our mission is to offer you access to industry leaders and to encourage long lasting bonds with your YMA FSF alumni. These relationships and experiences will give you tremendous support and help to shape your career as you venture into the expansive workplace the fashion industry has to offer.
Your summer will start with our Intern Social where you get to rub elbows and speak with our board members, ambassadors, and mentors. At this event you will also hear from stand-out fashion industry leaders, who will offer you their personal tips and inspirational advice on how maximize your potential as a fashion professional. In 2014 we were fortunate to have the opportunity of hearing from the former CEO of Bloomingdale’s, Michael Gould!
As your summer progresses, you will be invited to about 20 “Breakfast with the Boss” events, which are hosted by New York’s top fashion industry professionals. We will also host other networking and educational events throughout the City so that your time here is well spent and filled with exciting ways to nurture your development as a dynamic fashion leader.
