CEO and Founder

After 12 years driving AIME, Jack has helped lead a generation of the most disadvantaged kids in Australia - Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander high school kids - out of inequality. In Australia  40% of Indigenous young people between the age of 18-25 are in university, employment or further training. For non-Indigenous people it's 75%. Kids participating in the AIME program over the last few years have hit 75% and 76% straight out of high school. 

Over 10,000 high school kids and 5,000 university students have been through the program over the last decade. 

In 2017 the model will be launched across the globe with 10 young people having the chance to take AIME to their country to end fight inequality through mentoring and education.
