The Australian Indigenous Mentoring Experience (AIME) is a dynamic educational programme that supports Indigenous students throughout high school and into university, employment or further education. The goal is to increase high school graduation rates and university admission rates among Indigenous youth, to bring them in line with the rates of all Australian students. Students at business schools across the country participate as volunteer mentors and work with Year 12 Indigenous students to share real life experiences of studying at university in the field of business. Students completing the programme are proven to finish school and transition through to university, training and employment at the same rate as every Australian child – effectively closing the gap in educational outcomes.
