Internships are an important part of what we do. As students do work that advances the AAERO mission, they learn and demonstrate their skills in ways that affect future opportunities. In summer 2021 AAERO has a Fayetteville State University student intern. (Look for details soon.)
In summer 2020 Jeffrey Thompson, a recent graduate of North Carolina Central University, served as intern to add demographic information, including race and ethnicity, to a database of nearly 1200 incarcerated people who participate in the Church of the Larger Fellowship Worthy Now prison ministry. To learn more about existing education programs for incarcerated people, view the PBS documentary, “College Behind Bars.”
North Carolina Central University (NCCU) psychology majors, Briana Moore and Kayla Holland were AAERO interns in 2013. They assisted with the interview of NCCU Registrar, Dr. Jerome Goodwin who, as a child, was one of the first African Americans to attend an all-white school. These interns earned credit for a Psychology course by completing this internship.
