Summer 2018 Leaders

The Summer 2018 Leadership Program is a way for Everly Mag Ambassadors to get even more involved in the brand.

These talented teens have immersed themselves in the world of Everly Mag for at least a month, completed an intensive application, and are eager to contribute to help us grow and strengthen our publication, media, programming, and more!

From April to July 2018, the leaders will be helping with either writing, ambassador programming, or social media, and learning the ins and outs of working within a small business.  We’re so happy to have this incredible group on our Everly team!

Get to know our leaders below.
