AFE internships are the best way for students to gain real, hands-on experience that helps them practice and expand their knowledge. “If any student were to ask me about the Vic and Margaret Ball internship program, I would tell them to do it,” Charles Crume, one of our 2022 interns, said. “It was an amazing opportunity for me that I would have not traded for anything.” Read more about the incredible internship experiences from the 2022 interns here!
