Do you know a well-traveled teen? My company ( is developing a Teen Advisory Panel. The well-traveled teens on our Teen Advisory Panel will work with our Luxury Custom Travel consultants giving tips and insights to make our guests’ next family travel experience a great one. The panelists will field occasional questions from our Luxury Custom Travel consultants concerning teen-specific hints for certain destinations and experiences. Answers will be three quick ideas from a teen perspective written out in bullet points with applicable links. Examples might include great Instagrammable spots in a certain city, a hidden spot for the best ice cream, or tips for scoring tickets to concerts or museums. We don’t imagine this taking more than an hour a month. We are looking for teenagers between the ages of 14-17 who have visited 15 or more countries on three or more continents outside of North America. If you think your teen or a teen you know qualifies and might be interested, I encourage him/her to fill out the application found here: We will be picking up to ten teens to join the panel. Participation in the panel is voluntary, but we will be offering prizes to those selected. They will receive a $50 gift card upon selection and another $250 gift card if they answer at least five questions in a year. They will also be noted on our website with their photo and first name only. Applications are due on June 24, so please have your teen act quickly if he/she is interested. Thanks for your consideration! Elisabeth, class of '96

Student workshops, and community discussions. 🗣🗣🗣
