What is AAConnect?
AAConnect is an Afghan-American network that aims to create a platform for members to share academic and professional resources, opportunities, and skills-based trainings/webinars.
WHAT DOES AACONNECT PROVIDE?
AAConnect members benefit from:
- A global membership base of Afghan professionals and students from various backgrounds, industries, and interests
- Access to a network of jobs, fellowships, and professional/academic resources through our email distribution list
- Social-networking and mentorship opportunities through use of our member directory
- Skills-based training events which include podcasts and forums with industry leaders
HOW IS AACONNECT DIFFERENT FROM AMP?
The Afghan Mentorship Program (AMP) is a community-driven organization dedicated to helping Afghan youth pursue higher education, that functions outside of the AAC umbrella. AMP connects Afghan-American youth, mostly high school students, to successfully qualified Afghan-American mentors who can provide the advice and guidance they need.
