We spend every day working to provide a better future for students in the Bay Area. We’d love for you to join us and advance our mission.
Volunteering with Aim High gives your company an opportunity to align your brand with one of the most respected nonprofits working in the Bay Area today. We’re looking to partner with companies who value a triple bottom line where investing in strong communities is valued alongside turning a profit.
Employees of our corporate partners can get involved as summer volunteers or serve in leadership roles on our board or regional leadership councils. Participating in a career panel at one of our campuses is one volunteer opportunity; being a guest speaker in one of our classes is another. We may be able to customize a volunteer experience for your employees. Contact us to learn more.
Volunteering Up Close: Career Day
Many of our partners host a Career Day for our students. Career Day involves hosting 10-40 students and their teachers on-site and typically involves a 2-3-hour commitment. Activities are designed to help students understand the connection between education and career. Watch how GoPro implemented a Career Day at their workplace.
