AIM HIGH IN LIFE Educational and Life Skills Program
Entering Our 11th Year of Transforming and Saving Young People Lives!
Parents and Students work together to help increase the number of Success Stories from our community with the end result of boosting High School and College graduation rates for African America and Hispanic students, especially our male students.
Workshops feature effective communication, academic improvement, financial literacy, and health and fitness.
Presenters are entrepreneurs, tradesmen (e.g., plumbers, auto mechanics), health and fitness trainers, scientists, engineers, and military personnel.
HERE IS HOW YOU CAN HELP:
Bring your family and friend, especially your sons, nephews, and young male friends in your “circle of influence” to the meetings. Make sure they are part of this journey of excellence: planned activities and exposure outings. Let's work together to connect young people to their Destiny!
