WELCOME TO AIME’S IMAGI-NATION{TV} & IMAGI-NATION{CLASSROOM} EXPERIENCE FOR KIDS ACROSS THE EARTH’S SURFACE

Welcome to the IMAGI-NATION {TV} Partner Pack

I founded AIME 16 years ago to bring mentors into the lives of kids left behind. Since then we’ve grown to become global experts in mentoring, last year being honoured as one of the top 50 education groups in the world.

We created IMAGI-NATION{TV} to put a mentor in the home every day during the tough times of COVID-19 and beyond. It’s a daily TV show broadcast live on YouTube, and it’s a gift for teachers, parents and kids to help make sense of today and imagine tomorrow.

For the sake of clarity and ease, we’ve listed all the potential partnership opportunities in one pack. Click on "Go to section" and can find your way through it via the table of contents on the left.

For all partnership options, the funds and work we do together will be employing our team and creating the best and most engaging show. It will allow for partnerships with curriculum designers to create curriculum content for teachers to incorporate IMAGI-NATION{TV} into their daily lesson plans. It will allow us to have our best shot together to get a mentor into every kid’s life every single day - the number of kids affected by COVID-19 school closures stood at almost almost 1.5 billion as of 28 March.

about aime

Our show is also relevant for university students whom we’ve trained to be mentors for the last 16 years. We can help motivate them as they make their way through these times as well.

Our pursuit is to elevate knowledge. Every guest we bring on knows something; they have wisdom to share. This show is not about entertainment to pass the time. We want to remake the mould for the modern hero - from beauty to brains, from selfies to self knowledge, from hashtags to hope. IMAGI-NATION {TV} is surging to unlock the best in every single one of us, to release a generation of heroes in the form of mentors who fight for a fairer world.

I know we are short for time so let’s get into it. Let’s make the most important TV show the world has ever seen.

Yours in Imagination,

Jack Manning Bancroft
IMAGI-NATION{TV} EP & Founder, AIME CEO & Founder

about aime

IMAGI-NATION{CLASSROOM}

Daily after IMAGI-NATION{TV}, we run simultaneous classrooms locally guided by AIME mentors.

In Australia, we run them after the live show at 12 noon AEST.

Globally, our mentors replay the show and then host our live IMAGI-NATION{CLASSROOMS}. The classrooms have university volunteer mentors and a lead AIME mentor leading and supporting the mentees.

They run for 30 minutes.

The format of each IMAGI-NATION{CLASSROOM} is:

  • 5 minute reflection on what we learned from IMAGI-NATION{TV}
  • 5 minute meditation
  • 5 minute school questions
  • 5 minute life questions
  • 10 minutes failure time*

*Failure Time is AIME’s original creation. It provides a learning framework for mentees to embrace any possible learning activity through the lens of seeing failure as a pathway to learning.

Imagination Investors

Imagination Investors $200k+

If you want to see a mentor in every kid's life every single day -someone who teaches them how to think, not what to think - then invest in an Imagination Agenda to transform the world. If you believe that marginalised kids are not the problem, but are the solution if given the stage; if you know the power of entrepreneurs to change the world; if you know imagination is critical to change the world, then this is the investor section that says:‘Hey you guys, I’m here and on your team. Let’s do this! Use this funding for anything you need to bring this show to life, to amplify it and light up kids’ minds. This is your untied Imagination Fund.’

In this space we imagine philanthropists who have rocked the world would donate funds to work with us; this is for the investors who have made their way and who know that with a little rocket fuel, you can go to the moon.

Content Partners

Content Partners $100k+

For organizations looking to reach youngsters, we are open to exploring classy content partnerships. Let’s get it out there. This is a form of advertising… and we’d wanna do it in a ballistically classy way. For example, we would love to provide the opportunity to invite one of your top designers onto our 'design-themed' episode of IMAGI-NATION{TV}, and discuss the positive ways and good work that you and your organisation are contributing to the world. We could then also explore the potential for a further Q&A segment with one of IMAGI-NATION{TV}'s hosts/puppets.

We can find sophisticated ways to tell stories together around our 21 values . We can make videos together, write stories, and we may even, if it’s really high-class, create a collab piece of AIME apparel together.

Puppet Partners

Puppet Partners $50k+

Invest in the development of our puppets for the show. We want to develop puppets that have all the characteristics of our 21 values. This funding will support employment of our puppet maker and puppeteers. It will allow us to employ writers to work on the puppets and help produce scripts for the show every day.

Surely you wanna create a puppet? Maybe we can look at something that’s important to you or your organisation and build a puppet around that?

Corporate Wellbeing

Corporate Wellbeing $50k+

For large organisations (free packages available for small to medium organisations with donations welcome)

To recognise the challenges of this current time, AIME is offering a subsidised corporate wellbeing package. This gives the chance for corporates to use IMAGI-NATION{TV} as an official wellbeing offer for their staff and bring over 1,500 world class mentors into their lives per year. This package allows an organisation to provide guidance and motivation to its staff during the times of COVID-19 and beyond, with a commitment to give staff an official 30 minutes a day to recharge with their friends, family and colleagues by joining the mentors on IMAGI-NATION{TV}.

This is your chance to act on your commitment to health and wellbeing. A chance to send your staff a message about the value of giving space for parents to have a moment during the day with their kids to bring mentors into their lives. And to make it part of the daily diet by scheduling it as a meeting invite for all staff to bring mentors into your teams’ lives every single day.

Our core focus is imagination, and we’ve been in the game of behaviour change for marginalised kids and university students for 16 years. With IMAGI-NATION{TV}, the focus is on our inner child, on unlocking that curiosity and joy to fuel hope, inspiration and action. Considering the challenges that many of us are facing with kids at home, IMAGI-NATION{TV} is a gift for all parents to sit down with their kids for an hour a day. And if you don’t have kids, it’s a gift for the kid inside you!

Check outthis article in Harvard Business Review from 2 BCG Henderson Institute thinkers explaining how imagination helps businesses succeed and why it’s even more critical in the current climate.
