It’s no secret that the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted all of our lives, in many different ways. Unfortunately, many students in our community lost their internships and therefore are not getting the real life experience to prepare them for post-grad life. We want to help them in any way we can and now you can too! By sponsoring students to join AAF Midlands, you are giving them the opportunity to get that real world experience, even without an internship.
