Project Description

Jason R. Baron Public Service Fellowship Recipient

“This was a great experience and I got the chance to learn about different issues and to prepare for and attend different congressional and USAID events surrounding the summit.”

My accomplishments this summer included helping the staff prepare for many hearings, working on many aspects of the African Leaders Summit. I helped staff prepare for many important congressional hearings throughout the summer, specifically hearings on the topics of Gender-based Violence, The Unaccompanied Minor Crisis, African Orphans, and the Ebola Outbreak. In preparation for these hearings I helped staff to collect bios and relevant information on senators or congress members to prepare for questions they might ask the USAID witness. I also helped participate in preparation meetings, and attended the hearings and prepared transcripts for the staff. For the second-half of the summer I also worked on preparation for the African Leaders Summit. The President held this summit in early August and almost all of the heads of state from Africa participated. This was a great experience and I got the chance to learn about different issues and to prepare for and attend different congressional and USAID events surrounding the summit. [/googlefont]
