The AIME mentoring program uses University students from Federation University Australia, both indigenous and non-indigenous, to support Indigenous students through their studies. Students learn to be comfortable with their own identity – focusing on themselves as an individual, building self-esteem and confidence and identifying with their culture. They learn about being a leader and the skills required to be an effective leader. Students are presented with opportunities and connections to assist them when leaving school. The mentors also come along during Term 2 and 3 to support students with learning during the homework clubs.
Kurnai College has been involved in the AIME program since 2014.
