Exclusive opportunity for students at Hampton, Penn State, and Syracuse Universities
In an effort to provide its players, families, and fans with the best possible experience during the Little League® Region and World Series Tournaments, Little League International teamed up with Hampton, Penn State, and Syracuse Universities to provide students with an exclusive six-week experiential opportunity known as the “World Series Residency Program.”
The experience provides students with a hands-on, real-world opportunity for upperclassmen to get practical experience in the fields of online journalism, sports and event photography, sports and event videography, and video post-production, at one of the world’s largest and most revered sporting events. This group of communications support personnel assists Little League’s efforts for all its communications vehicles, specifically surrounding the video highlights from Region and Division World Series games as well as on-site activations and in-game entertainment in Williamsport. Additional help may be used at the Little League Softball® World Series in Greenville, North Carolina, as well.
Roles and Responsibilities
Video Highlight Support (Remote)
From the start of the Little League Softball Region Tournaments through the conclusion of the Little League Baseball® World Series, Little League International oversees the process by which highlights are identified from a broadcast, published online, and archived. These positions support that effort and are expected to work remotely to cover the games based on the broadcast schedule, including non-traditional hours at night and outside of a traditional work schedule.
Various On-Field and In-Game Communications Roles
As teams begin arriving in Williamsport for the Little League Baseball World Series, students travel to Williamsport to participate in the on-site phase of the program where they will assist with various communications roles (on-field camera and scoreboard operators, with opportunities for photographers, feature writers, and more based on skillsets). In addition to the on-site activities, students continue to assist with video highlights through the conclusion of the tournament.
NOTE: Opportunity to assist at the Little League Softball World Series in Greenville, North Carolina, may also be available as an option based on availability.
How To Apply:
Please note that this opportunity is exclusive only for students at Hampton, Penn State, or Syracuse Universities.
