Since joining Aim High, I can honestly say that i have seen a positive change in my son who is transitioning into the 7th grade this year. He is showing me that he can be responsible and account for the things he has or hasn't done. They have taught him how to love himself and others and to always be respectful. There were many instructors that impacted my son, but one in particular is Mr. Ise from the Bishop O'Dowd campus...my son really looks up to him and really appreciates the time, energy and teaching methods of Mr. Ise..he is very engaging and enlightening.

Extremely positive and reassuring to the kids. They engaged them in learning through their creativity and that played a great part in the children wanting to go to Aim High every day and do their best.

Aim High has dramatically changed the course of the lives of many Bay Area youth. It has also changed the course of many Bay Area adults, be they family members of students or aspiring teachers who are struck with the success of the Aim High model of education. Aim High opens doors and expands horizons of anyone who walks into this community. I have been working with this organization for 13 years and I keep coming back because of the enormous gifts it keeps on giving to our families. Thank you Aim High.

I knew that more students were being helped as much as these students were. I wish that EVERY middle school child was getting the sort of guidance that Aim High affords our students.

As a woman, a life-long learner, and a professional educator Aim High has changed my life. The healthy, positive adult relationships, opportunities for academic risk-taking, and emphasis on leadership and self-advocacy helped me to build the confidence that I needed to define and achieve my goals. Now that I am an employee of Aim High, I get to help other young people to build leadership skills and encounter experiences that will enrich their lives.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my own life and the grades and attitudes of the students we serve now.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

bring it to the South Bay. There is a great need for this kind of summer enrichment experience in the Silicon Valley where poverty lives among progress.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

provide California -- and the country -- with a brighter future and a stronger economy.

I had also worked at Aim High in high school.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

finding sustained, long-term partnerships for locations and donations.

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

replicate the program for many more students around the Bay Area. As far as I am concerned, it is saving lives.
