Education

Throughout AAF Greenville’s history, we have always been concerned with identifying effective ways to educate our community.  Our club executes this priority with programs and initiatives that target three areas of concentration:  students, general public and advertising professionals. For students, we offer an internship program that requires the committee to distribute information to upstate colleges, solicit applications, interview candidates, coordinate hosts for the internship and facilitate the eight-week internship. For the general public, we focus our efforts on our annual public service project and our participation in the Local Advertising Review Program (LARP).

Mission

To foster professional education opportunities for club members; provide leadership and learning opportunities for students; and educate the general public about the advertising industry.
