Give Back Tahoe: Aim High — making summer matter since 1986
Aim High is committed to closing the opportunity and achievement gaps in Northern California.
We provide under-resourced middle school students with academic and enrichment opportunities during the summer to better prepare them for the school year ahead.
Our tuition-free, multi-year program helps students fortify academic skills, explore college and career options, and build positive communities. We envision every middle school student having access to joyful summer learning, inspired teachers, and the support to succeed in school and life.
This year, Aim High celebrates its 30th anniversary, and this summer, 2,200 students and 450 educators joined us across 17 campuses.
We launched our Tahoe/Truckee campus in 2012. Since then, we’ve had two graduating classes, and our community of students, teachers, and alumni has grown! More than 120 students joined us at Kings Beach School for an inspiring and unforgettable summer experience.
How can you get involved? We are always seeking:
1: Enthusiastic high school and college students from Tahoe/Truckee communities who are interested in exploring the field of education;
2: Professional teachers to serve as educational mentors for staff and students alike;
3: Community members interested in serving on our Tahoe/Truckee Leadership Council to provide strategic guidance and support.
Please consider making a gift to Aim High in honor of our 30th anniversary. Your contribution will ensure that quality and longevity of our summer programming. Visit http://www.aimhigh.org for details.
