Networking Opportunity • Applications Due Sept. 30
The AFR Women’s Cooperative is dedicated to education within our communities. Our eight council members represent a diverse group of businesswomen and community leaders. It is our goal to offer mentorship opportunities to collegiate women and serve as professional role models. The AFR Collegiate Mentorship program is designed to offer college students a group mentorship setting with our 8 council members. With professional development, networking opportunities and philanthropic project experience, AFR Women’s Cooperative council members hope to share their own skill sets with other ambitious, career-driven young professionals.
