I have been involved with a great many non profit organizations, and I can say with no reservations that Aim High is the best run of them all. Every minute of contributed work by volunteers, and every dollar given the organization goes directly to provide a life-changing educational experience to wonderful middle school boys and girls from low income families. There is just no waste. The mission is clear, its execution superb. If you want to make a difference, get behind this excellent organization

As a parent of a special needs child, I am amazed at the positve impact Aim High has with it's students and families. Aim High is all about hope and potential, providing the environment and educational opportunties so youth and their families will find hope, achieve their goals and build a positive future. This organization needs the funding to continue their great work and accomodate many more who need the program!

In my 30 years in corporate philanthropy, I have seen numerouse education programs, in school, after school and summer programs. Aim High is, by far, the most successful program of its kind because of its attention to each individual student, the specificity of coursework and "skills" development offered to each student, its ability to track students during and after the program. The fact that so many Aim High students come back to the program to both volunteer and serve as employees is a testament to the extraordinary work they do. Pat Marino

This was my son's first summer with the Aim High program. This was a good experience for him because it was a chance for him to learn without just sitting in a classroom for hours. Because there were many different activities, it made him look forward to going to the program everyday. Also, he will be able to receive help throughout his school year because the program is offering tutoring.

Aim High is such an awesome opportunity for the youth. My son really enjoyed it this summer. The great thing about Aim High that they believe in our children and help them thrive and prepare for their academics and their future, the teachers are wonderful. The staff at Aim High are very helpful as well. We are looking forward to having our son at Aim High in the next two years! Aim High Rocks!

I have attended Aim High graduations for the last five years. Each time I am moved by the students enthusiasm for their work and the connection they have with their teachers. The families come and support their children from all parts of the city. We need more Aim High's for future generations. Supporting our children keeping them creative and motivated. Thank you Aim High.
