AIME 3

WHAT IS AIME?

AIME—Australian Indigenous Mentoring Experience—is a dynamic educational program that gives Indigenous students the skills, opportunities, belief and confidence to grow and succeed. AIME is proven to support Indigenous students to progress through and enter into high school, university, employment or further education at the same rate as all Australian students.

By 2018, AIME will annually engage 10,000 Indigenous high school students across Australia and support their transition to university, employment or further education at the same rate as every Australian child. This will build the Indigenous talent pipeline for employers to lead Australia into the future.
