3/23/20 ANNOUNCEMENT: In light of the current and still-evolving situation surrounding COVID-19, the FWS Program at A-B Tech is temporarily suspending all active listings for new positions/new hires until the conclusion of the Spring 2020 semester. As of this date, and until the end of our spring term, no new applicants will be accepted into our program, and no new listings for open positions will appear on our webpage. This is a temporary measure enacted to ensure the health and safety of all students, staff, and faculty at A-B Tech; as well as all persons at our various FWS community affiliates. We will continue to monitor guidance from both the College and our advisers at state and federal levels, and will update this page with any relevant news related to our program. Thank you.
