AIME works around Australia providing mentoring and educational services for indigenous high school students to see them get through school at the same rate as every Australian child.
The organisation started in 2005 with 25 kids and in 2013 AIME has worked with over 2000 indigenous high school kids with 1000 university students acting as mentors.
The great news is that over the last four years, AIME kids have finished school at almost the same rate as every Australian child.
Three Bombala High School students have been involved in the program and as a thank you from AIME the school was presented with a framed hoodie.
In 2010 AIME launched National Hoodie Day to spread the message around the nation that indigenous means success.
The hoodie the school has is one of the inaugural NHD Hoodies from 2010.
The hoodie will take pride of place in the school’s foyer.
Congratulations to Tim Olsen, Mozes Olsen and Corey Morrison for their participation in this rewarding program.
All three students have said that they thoroughly enjoyed their AIME experiences and only have positive comments to make about the mentoring.
“A big thank also must go to Steve Mitchell and the team from AIME for all their hard work and dedication to the indigenous students in our region,” Donna Shelley, AIME Coordinator, said.
