Thank you so much for your interest in Aim High's Board of Trustees. We are a group of twenty-five, who are deeply committed to and engaged in Aim High's mission: "Aim High creates life-changing opportunities during the summer and beyond. Our community: Nurtures the promise and potential of middle school students from low-income neighborhoods; Prepares students for high school, setting them on the path to college and future success; Inspires the next generation of teachers and educational leaders."
We represent a variety of professional backgrounds, and bring our expertise in active and enthusiastic ways to this work. Our priority is to ensure that the organization is operating and growing in a sustainable and smart way. All of us are passionate about youth and teacher development, joyful summer learning, and educational equity and access. As leaders in our professions and communities, we value bridging economic and educational gaps by providing access to quality educational enrichment experiences.
We are looking to add 3-5 new members in 2017. Our priorities are to recruit new members who are highly networked individuals excited about fundraising, and who have expertise in marketing, public relations, technology or venture capital. Gender and ethnic diversity is also a consideration. Strong prospects will be passionate about Aim High's mission and be willing to dedicate 8-10 hours a month to Aim High's Board of Trustees.
