NORTH ADAMS, Mass. —Lever's Berkshire Interns program will offer a series of virtual resume and cover letter workshops for college students in February and March.
These free workshops are open to any current college student seeking advice and information on internships and career readiness.

  • Feb. 2, noon
  • March 3, 1 p.m.
  • March 28, 7 p.m.
Lever Workforce Programs Manager Jade Schnauber will give a brief overview of Lever's Berkshire Interns program, which places college students in paid internships at leading Berkshire Businesses along with resources and support through the duration of the internship. Jade will also offer tips and best practices for resumes and cover letters; students who attend can bring a sample resume and cover letter for review, and can ask questions about the job/internship application process. 
"We want to provide a resource for students that works in tandem with college career readiness programs," they said. "Lever's Berkshire Interns program has placed 105 students in internships in Western Massachusetts—because we're so familiar with internships in the area, we can offer students additional information and context, helping them feel confident about applying to internships and even recommending positions that might be a good fit."

Community Marches to Raise Funds for Elizabeth Freeman Center

The center has raised 90 percent of its goal of $125,000 so far. 
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Residents and community leaders marching down North Street last week were encouraged by passing vehicles honking their support for the walk to raise funds for the Elizabeth Freeman Center. 
"It's been a tough 2 1/2 years. I think with COVID, we've all been feeling the pain and Elizabeth Freeman Center, we knew that COVID would create the very conditions that lead to increased violence," said Executive Director Janis Broderick.
"And we've been seeing we've been seeing more calls, much higher levels of danger, and much greater financial need prior to COVID are written to protection of violence."
Since 2006, at least 14 people, including three children, have "been murdered by their current or former partners, husbands and father," Broderick said.
