Welcome to AIME at Notre Dame

The Australian Indigenous Mentoring Experience (AIME) is now part of The University of Notre Dame Australia. AIME is a dynamic mentoring program that is proven to support Indigenous students through secondary school and into university, employment or further education at the same rate as all Australian students.

Many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people currently don’t finish school at the same rate as their peers. We have to opportunity to change that as a community. This is where AIME comes in.

As an organisation, AIME has developed a program that links Aboriginal secondary school students with university mentors in structured mentoring program designed to give the students support and encouragement. Students in the program visit the Notre Dame over the year to participate in a wide variety of sessions with their University mentors. Notre Dame students now have the opportunity to join this incredible program.

AIME is currently recruiting mentors to be involved. Apply today!
