The LEAD intern will assist with oversight of other interns and projects for each of the organizations. Publicizing and preparing for the annual Against the Tide fundraising event will be the main task involving MBCC. Responsibilities include contacting media outlets throughout Massachusetts with press releases and feature news stories covering the Against the Tide events. Tasks can be completed from school or home, as Internet and telephone will be the primary communication tools needed for assignments. Minimal travel except for on-site assistance required the day before and day of the 2012 Against the Tide Swim/Walk/Run/Kayak events held on June 23rd at DCR’s Hopkinton State Park in Hopkinton, MA, and on August 18th at DCR’s Nickerson State Park in Brewster, MA.
