Each year, Runway of Dreams hosts a virtual 8-week volunteer-based summer internship program (mid-June through early August). Interns hone valuable leadership, communication, and business skills while managing a project or event from concept to completion. Each week, they have the opportunity to learn from expert guest speakers. Typically, interns spend 15+ hours a week, working collaboratively and independently through the guidance and support of Runway’s leadership.
INTERNS HONE VALUABLE
AND BUSINESS SKILLS
INTERNS HAVE WORKED ON A VARIETY OF PROJECTS SUCH AS:
building the model for our high school and college club programs;
producing an adaptive fashion show;
running a first-of-its-kind virtual adaptive fashion show and a how-to
resource manual as a guide for the college clubs;
organizing and moderating a virtual expert panel discussion plus a
how-to resource for future leaders;
and fundraising and amplifying Runway of Dreams message on social media.
2022 SUMMER INTERNS
THE SUMMER 2021 INTERNS had the challenge of creating and moderating a panel discussion event with industry experts in the adaptive space and Gamut Management models. The purpose of the panel discussion was to inspire and empower students studying fashion, rising design innovators, entrepreneurs and anyone in the industry interested in learning about the need for adaptive clothing and power of fashion inclusivity. Also, the interns created a how-to resource guide for Runway of Dreams’ College Clubs to replicate nationwide.
