Mentorship program – Our mentorship program is a way for new members to become more involved, members who are interested can fill out a survey and get matched with someone with similar interests and automatically have a good friend in AITP!
Textbook exchange- Our textbook exchange is self explanatory, older students in AITP could potentially have books from last year’s classes that other students can buy for a fraction of the cost!
