Press Release

 

SUMMIT, N.J. ( Oct. 24, 2014) – Leadership, entrepreneurship and new ideas for cultural and economic advancement in Africa were carried along with the suitcases of Symbolic Systems, Inc.’s two Mandela Washington Fellowship Interns as they boarded planes back to their homelands in late September.

Following a six-week academic and leadership program at top U.S. universities and colleges, 100 of the 500 Mandela Washington Fellows are selected to remain in the U.S. to participate in eight-week internships, such as the one provided by Symbolic Systems, with more than 80 American non-governmental organizations, private companies and government offices.

Tinton Falls, N.J. (August 6, 2014) -- Symbolic Systems, Inc., with offices in Tinton Falls, N.J. and Aberdeen Proving Ground, Md., was selected by the United States Department of State to host two interns this summer for the Mandela Washington Fellowship, an exchange program supporting President Barack Obama’s Young African Leaders Initiative.

Following a six-week academic and leadership program at top U.S. universities and colleges, 100 of the 500 fellows were selected to remain in the U.S. to participate in eight-week internships with more than 80 American non-governmental organizations, private companies and government offices. The internships for the two Symbolic participants are being conducted in the town of Summit, N.J.

“I have no doubt that you’re going to leave behind for the next generation, and the generation after that, an Africa that is strong and vibrant and prosperous, and is ascendant on the world stage,” President Obama told the 500 fellows during the Mandela Washington Fellowship Town Hall held in Washington, D.C., last week.

Frank Ponzio, president and chief executive officer for Symbolic Systems, Inc., designed the internships for the company’s two fellows. The aim is to provide a practical understanding of how various community services operate, and how some aspects might be creatively adapted to meet social concerns in Africa.

‘Donate a Day: Work to Rebuild the Jersey Shore’ Effort Raises 11K for Sandy Victims

Summit, N.J. -- After the second costliest storm in U.S. history pounded New Jersey and its neighboring states last October, employees at Symbolic Systems, Inc., a small company headquartered in Summit, N.J., decided to help out in an unconventional way. The workforce sent the money from their unused vacation time to the New Jersey Relief Fund.

Through this effort, referred to as “Donate a Day: Work to Rebuild the Jersey Shore,” more than $11,000 was raised to help the victims of Super Storm Sandy.

“I think what has made ‘Donate a Day’ such a success is that our employees helped people that they know who not only suffered personal inconveniences, but also huge financial losses,” said Frank Ponzio, Symbolic’s founder and president, “and I personally thank everyone who made this project a success.”
