Internship: Worcester Sharks (AHL)

Blog Entry:

 

The Worcester Sharks are a professional hockey franchise located in the DCU Center in downtown Worcester. Every employee, from player to office worker, works at a fast pace in a team-orientated organization devoted to creating an efficient, comfortable work environment. Theoffice staff is devoted to enhancing ticket sales and creating a positive impact on the Worcester community.

 

As a marketing intern with the Worcester Sharks, my favorite experience has been conducting research about how the Worcester Sharks contribute to the community. A few of their annual events include “Reading is Cool” and the “Sharks Street Brigade”. Both of these events involve getting youth involved in education and sports. I had the opportunity to work at the Kids Club event where I helped young children learn basic hockey skills and become a part of the Sharks Kids Club.

 

As I gather research on what other teams do in the AHL to enhance their local communities, I am proposing ideas to develop an annual golf tournament to raise money for charity as well as hospital visits by our team mascot, Finz, to young children suffering with cancer. I greatly appreciate working in the area of community programming.
