Internships provide valuable educational experiences, as they facilitate student learning outside of the classroom. Interns have the opportunity to appreciate more fully the connections between theory and practice, to adapt to a culture outside the traditional  environment, and to gain exposure to potential career choices. Interns also help by serving the company in areas of need. Watch our YouTube series called ‘The Intern Project’ to learn more about how internships with AWIP affected some of our alumni!
