Internship Program Mission
The mission of the Maine Red Claws internship program is to educate its participants in all aspects of operating a professional sports organization. Through observation and practical experience, interns learn how to function in a professional environment that requires a high energy level, the ability to perform under pressure and the utilization of essential time management skills. Through these developments, the Red Claws strive to successfully prepare their interns to compete for positions in the professional sports industry.
The Maine Red Claws are offering Spring internships that will provide a great learning experience for everyone. We are offering positions in an array of areas including sales, marketing, operations & public relations. Our internships present a unique opportunity to gain hands-on experience in the daily operations of a professional sports team in the NBA Development League.
Our organization has a simple hope when it comes to our role in the community: to use the power and magic of basketball and the Maine Red Claws – its people, team, properties and events – to help better the community in which we live.
As we enter our first season as Maine's newest professional sports team, we aim to be active and involved with the state of Maine and the many charities and organizations that work hard every day to make this such a great place to live.
The Red Claws focus their charitable efforts on four areas:
Health & Fitness:
Childhood obesity is one of our nation’s leading health threats. Today nearly 1 in 3 children in the US are overweight or obese.
Athletic participation benefits children in many ways. It fosters physical fitness, teaches the importance of working together as a team toward a common goal, and rewards that teamwork with lessons of what can be accomplished with effort. It can enrich lives by bringing together people of diverse backgrounds with similar interests.
The Maine Red Claws Foundation believes that athletics teach children lessons that they will implement throughout their lives.
It takes heart to win, on and off the court. The Red Claws strive to spread the message of the importance of education. Whether it is through participation in the NBA D-League's Read to Achieve program, a donation to a local school fund-raiser or a visit to area schools, the Red Claws will emphasize the value of education.
Did you know that about 19,000 Maine children are uninsured? Or that more than 46,000 kids under 18 live in poverty? That the teen deaths caused by motor vehicle accidents nearly outnumber all other causes combined? That more than 4,000 kids were the victims of child abuse and/or neglect?
From hospitals, to youth basketball, to wish granting organizations, to the many programs that give kids some place to go after school, the Maine Red Claws goal is to utilize the power and magic of basketball and the organization's resources to bring joy and happiness to children facing issues no child should ever have to face.
Whether dealing with illness, homelessness, poverty, foster care/adoption or tragedy, children have an uncanny ability to survive and to thrive; the Maine Red Claws' aim is to help as many of those kids as possible.
Maine is our home, and like every good citizen, the Maine Red Claws will use our resources to aid as many charitable organizations as we can.
We will reach out through basketball clinics, school visits, appearances, and the donation of autographed items for charitable fund-raisers.
We all have an obligation to do our part, and the Maine Red Claws will use our assets to be a good neighbor and great citizen.
