Project Description

For over a decade, the Bungee Book Club (BBC) members have come together to discuss books and share ideas. BBC members (a.k.a. Bungees, BBCniks, Bungestas) are primarily staff from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), but anyone can join. The only prerequisites are a love of reading, and a curiosity about human behavior. The mission of the BBC is to enrich the thinking, learning, and professional development of USAID staff and those in the larger development community. The intention is to foster leadership and growth that will collectively contribute to a stronger community.

Many of the BBC book selections focus on behavioral economics, organizational development, and productivity. The BBC provides a unique opportunity and the space for people to process and reflect on some of the latest thinking in these areas. The intention of the BBC is to support professional growth and help employees work more efficiently, effectively, and collaboratively.

For this project, we are looking for a student to review our book selections and update our website: http://thebbc.info/. We welcome interns with new ideas on how to modernize the website, make it more user friendly, and/or interactive. The VSFS intern must have the ability to work both independently and collaboratively on assigned tasks in a virtual environment. Prior experience writing web content is preferred but not required. We hope that our VSFS intern will find new ways to engage our book club members.
