Australian Indigenous Mentoring Experience (AIME) at SCU Lismore10:00am, 1 August 2012 to 2:30pm, 1 August 2012
AIME provides a dynamic educational Program that gives Indigenous Australian high school students the skills, opportunities, belief and confidence to finish school at the same rate as their peers.
AIME partners University student Mentors with Indigenous Australian Secondary School students. AIME has proven to dramatically improve the chances of Indigenous Australian youth finishing school and it connects students with post-Year 12 opportunities, including further education and employment.
AIME CEO is Bundjalung man, Jack Manning Bancroft. In 2005 as a 19-year-old uni student, Jack founded the AIME Program with 25 Indigenous kids in Redfern.
