Summer Internships Give Students First-Hand Business Insights
Some students at Hatboro-Horsham High School are keeping themselves busy during the summer with its Bridges internship program. Bridges is targeted to juniors and seniors providing opportunities for internships in the professions. This can assist students in deciding which programs to take in college.
A student interested in an internship must complete an application and meet with one of the teachers for an interview. The teachers work with the students to develop their resumes, talk to them about their interests and identify possible placements. A teacher also accompanies each student on interviews with prospective employers.
The internships, which are unpaid, can last between two weeks and six months, and usually take place during the summer. Here at NewAge, interns meet regularly with CEO, Ken Baker, and with company team leaders. They get the opportunity to spend time with team members in various departments and learn about different job responsibilities and requirements.
Team Members Help Underprivileged Kids During the Holidays
The team members at NewAge Industries contribute to the Toys for Tots program to help needy families and children in our area.
Conducted by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve, the mission of the Toys for Tots program is to collect new, unwrapped toys and distribute them as Christmas gifts to needy children in the local community. The primary goal of Toys for Tots is to deliver, through a shiny new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to needy youngsters that will motivate them to grow into responsible, productive, patriotic citizens and community leaders.
You can help Toys for Tots by making a donation today.
Enrichment of a Grade School in Impoverished Cambodia
When several of our team members received new laptops recently, five machines were donated to the Caramanico School in northern Cambodia. The school, founded by Anne and Thomas Caramanico in rural Ratanakiri provence, has 180 students. Up until last year the school had only one computer powered by a single solar panel on the roof. Now with multiple computers, the school can offer computer instruction as a class as opposed to one-on-one instruction. Visit the school website at www.caramanicoschool.com for more information on the work being done there.
Bringing the Real Business World Into the Classroom
NewAge Industries works with an educational organization called Partners in Education, which involves businesses with local high schools. Our company's CEO, Ken Baker, truly believes that today's students are tomorrows leaders and generously gives both time and money to both. Ken visits the business classes of our area's two high schools to communicate topics ranging from business ethics to career development and interviewing skills. NewAge also hosts teachers and students at the company's offices where each can learn about educational requirements, job fields in demand, intern opportunities, and the complexities and rewards of operating a business. Partners in Education helps bring the real business world into the classroom.

Supporting School Sports and Music
responds to requests from the athletic
teams of local schools and sports
associations and from school-sponsored
musical groups. The teams and groups ask
businesses for financial support by the
placement of an advertisement in program
books to accompany their events. These
ads remind attendees who NewAge is and
what we do, while helping the kids.
Employees Give the Gift of Life
throughout the year, NewAge invites its
team members to take an hour of their
workday to donate a pint of blood. The
American Red Cross sets-up a temporary
donation station at the company's
headquarters, where almost 20% of the
staff gives blood. It's a winning
situation for both organizations:
NewAge's team contributes to the area's
blood supply without ever having to leave
