We are always looking for passionate supporters of Aim High who want to join our Board of Trustees. Our trustees are committed to building a sustainable organization, helping Aim High realize its mission and increase its outreach and impact.

If you are an Aim High champion and interested in exploring taking on a leadership role with the organization, we accept Trustee applications throughout the year but focus on the recruitment process primarily in the fall as the summer program winds down.
