AIME Mentoring

For 9 years I worked in front-end web development and branding at AIME.

The Australian Indigenous Mentoring Experience (AIME) is a nonprofit organisation that mentors Indigenous kids throughout their high school years, empowering them with the tools and support to complete school at the same rate as their non-Indigenous peers and transition into university, employment or further education.

Starting with 25 students and 25 volunteer mentors in 2005, with its effectiveness in closing the educational gap, the program has now reached 15,000 students and 5,000 mentors Australia-wide.

As AIME’s sole in-house web developer, the main web projects for me annually were the AIME website, online Mentor Application and various campaign-based web apps and ‘microsites’ (annual reports, fundraisers, internal events, etc).

Over the course of my 9-year tenure, I helped build the AIME brand ethos, ensuring visual consistency throughout the organisation. Guiding design practices and collaborating with the Graphic Designer and Comms Team across both digital and print materials, such as social media content and program collateral.
