In a video produced by Gallaudet University, Brenda Aron is interviewed as one of the two volunteers in the Peace Corps who worked in Guatemala setting up their first deaf program.
Video shows Brenda and also Gallaudet International Studies major Michaela Hanley, ’16, who interned at LAVOSI, a school for the Deaf in Guatemala during the summer of 2015 through an internship with the International Deaf Partnerships, a U.S.-based nonprofit organization.
The first two Peace Corps volunteers, Gallaudet alumna Brenda Aron, ’78, and Len Aron appears in the video along with Dr. Barbara White, President of International Deaf Partnerships.
The Peace Corps is a volunteer program run by the United States government to provide technical assistance, help people outside the United States understand American culture, and help Americans understand cultures in other countries. Most of their work is on social and economic development.
Each Peace Corps Volunteer is an American citizen, usually with a college degree, who works overseas for two years after three months of training.
