Armed Forces Student Association


The Armed Forces Student Association (AFSA) at Youngstown State was founded on December 20, 2010, by fellow student veterans who shared a common idea to give back to the service men and women of the Ohio Valley.

The purpose of the AFSA is to gather members with the common interest of helping veterans locally in our community by giving back to those who have served our country and to show them that we are forever thankful for them. AFSA accomplishes this mission by providing service and donations through fundraisers and volunteer work for the local veteran organization.
