AIM HIGH
October 27, 2014

Aim High provides a small-knit and caring community for underserved Bay Area youth. At Aim High, students become scientists, writers, mathematicians, they learn to rock climb, sail, or dance. The best measure of Aim High's success is the number of students who return to the program year after year, even long after they graduate.

AIM HIGH
September 28, 2009

I have been an Intern at Aim High for 4 summers. I have helped Master Teachers and led my own Math and Humanities class. These summers have been, by far, the most enjoyable and rewarding of my life. I have connected with students, hopefully inspiring them to take their educations seriously and to enjoy learning. Ever year I look forward to going back to Aim High and seeing all my old students and the excited new students. When I see my students come back to the program to be TAs, I know that Aim High is doing something fantastic.

The Great!

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

seeing students return to the program as TAs and Interns, seeing students go to great colleges and thrive.

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

working with fantastic teachers who care deeply about their students.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

inspiring.

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

focus more on running the organization, and spend less time on fundraising.
