Overview of BuzzAround Internships
BuzzAround.Info is a digital media company, established in 2009. We are a social entrepreneurship which publishes 7 weekly newsletters, and social media posts to 17 South Shore MA communities and 17,000 subscribers in the Bridgewater / Brockton MA area. Using proven social science*, we build stronger, more engaged, and resilient communities. We publicize positive news, events, and activities, empowering readers to interact with their local government, civic and community organizations. We create positive connections with these and local businesses, supporting healthy economic development. By keeping the interaction positive, we ease the process of making new connections across generational, ideological and cultural divides. This encourages creative problem solving and community building.
All Interns enter a training program that includes an overview of the company, the importance of sustainable communities, the roles, and responsibilities of the job. There is additional training specific to the internship responsibilities. Interns learn, practice and then use the skills in their work. They are given concrete positive encouragement and guidance.
BuzzAround.Info does not and shall not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion (creed), gender, gender expression, age, national origin (ancestry), disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status, in any of its activities or operations.
We are committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for all members of our staff, clients, volunteers, subcontractors, vendors, and clients.
Since we are intentionally aware of the challenges faced when entering the global workforce, the Buzz Around Internship can also include training on Interfaith Communication. This curriculum from the Interfaith Youth Core was created by an interdisciplinary team of psychologists, sociologists and theology professionals to help students focus on their own personal stories as a way to have a foundation for reaching across boundaries and creating relationships with unfamiliar cultures and philosophies.
