Miercuri, 29 martie 2023, la Senatul României a avut loc lansarea Programului de Mentorat AFIST 2023 – AIM for Inspiration and Success Through Mentorship organizat de AFIST.

Transferul de cunoștințe între generații și paradigma long life learning sunt esențiale pentru evoluția de la universitățile clasice la multiversitățile viitorului. În acest sens, credem că acest Program de Mentorat este o modalitate excelentă de a sprijini aceste idei și de a construi o comunitate de sprijin pentru tinerii din domeniile tehnice.
Am fost onorați să primim oameni de succes care și-au împărtășit experiențele și cunoștințele despre cum să reușim în lumea complexă și în schimbare rapidă de astăzi. Împreună, am creat o comunitate vibrantă de cursanți și lideri, care se sprijină reciproc în călătoria lor către succes.

The band started its activity about an hour and a half ago and is currently presented as a duo, the stable members and founders of the band being Matei Alexandru and Cătălin Sima. The band's goal is to make good music that gladdens the hearts of as many people as possible.

The first month of spring is meant to celebrate women. AFIST's goal is to promote women as well as education, and today we celebrated women's day through small gestures that can change the future.

We offered to students with good academic results and from disadvantaged backgrounds 8 tablets donated by Fundația Altex, our first partner in the campaign "Together with AFIST!" and another 10 tablets donated by a sponsor who wishes to remain anonymous. Through this gesture, we tried to instill in the young women the desire to continue building a beautiful future through education and, at the same time, to feel supported in this regard.

Our first Serata AFIST of the year was in January and it was an accumulation of energy, joy and excitement. During the AFIST evening, we had the pleasure to have Daniel Bălan, semi-finalist of Romanians Voice, as our guest, who delighted us.

In addition to his musical talent, Daniel also shares his passion for being a geography teacher, conveying this passion to his students, which is reflected in the exceptional results they have achieved over the years in national competitions and Olympiads.
