Our Boards

In partnership, Aim High’s Trustees, Ambassadors and Young Leaders advance our mission to create life-changing opportunities during the summer.

Aim High is governed by a dedicated Board of Trustees who bring together a wealth of experience in philanthropy, leadership, operational management, business and finance. Our Trustees, together with our Ambassadors and Young Leaders, help us to build a sustainable organization prepared to serve students, families and teachers now and in the future.
