This summer Posse Atlanta Scholars took their successes from the classroom to the workforce to engage in exciting internship opportunities. A few of these internships are highlighted below.

Brandeis University Scholar and anthropology major Carlyle Vincent had a unique opportunity to live in Philadelphia for a six-week internship at University of Pennsylvania’s Positive Psychology Center to conduct field research on positive psychology and how to apply it in education settings.

“This internship will give me an opportunity to delve deeper into the field of positive psychology and provide me with the tools I need to refine curriculum for future educators,” says Carlyle. “I hope that further research on strategies and the effects of positive psychology will bolster my success in the classroom.”

Jackson Tribbet, a Scholar at The College of Wooster, is an advancement intern at San Francisco’s Transgender Law Center. He’s assisting with fundraising initiatives as well as working on projects for the partnership developed between the Center and Southerners on New Ground, a regional LGBT liberation organization. Jackson is looking forward to contributing to an organization that works to change laws, policy and attitudes to free individuals from discrimination based on gender identity or expression.

Paul Duhe, a rising sophomore at Bard College, will be interning at the renowned Electric Lady Studios founded by Jimmy Hendrix in 1970. As a music major Paul is not only utilizing his musical talents vocally and instrumentally, but also through audio engineering.

“Bard has allowed me to write music and produce as well as collaborate with other musicians,” says Paul. “This summer I hope to make connections with influential individuals in the industry and take notes from the best to improve my skills on the mixing tables and recording equipment.”
