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.

If you’d like to learn more about joining one of Aim High’s volunteer boards, please contact us.
