The Ethnic Young Adult (EYA) internship program is concluding at the end of this week. We are going to highlight interns throughout the week to help give you a glimpse into the summer program.
Meet Errolyn Gray from the Mississippi Annual Conference and recent graduate of Alcorn State University.
Errolyn was placed at RESULTS, a non-profit organization focusing on addressing the root causes of poverty. As part of the U.S. Anti-Poverty Campaign team, her work at RESULTS focused on early childhood development as a key to addressing poverty and hunger. Errolyn participated in legislative and grassroots programs that included preparing action alerts and resources, participating in conference calls, and sending electronic communication.
Through this intership, Errolyn sought to gain experience working in advocacy and policy organizations but, most importantly, she wanted to grow spiritually. Her faith is an important part of her work at RESULTS. "My faith impacts me at work because, I truly believe, that as Christians, we have to help those in need."
