AFA Student Leaders

Ready to take on a bigger role?

AFA student leaders play an integral part in nurturing relationships between AFA and college campuses, raising awareness of programs and planning AFA Leaders Conference and AFA Leader Institutes.

The Student Advisory Team helps plan and facilitate the AFA Leaders Conference and AFA Leader Institutes. Student Advisors influence the program environment and overall participant experience.
