The AIMS Program (Athletes in Math Succeed) is a non-profit organization founded in 2006 at George Washington High School in San Francisco. AIMS was awarded a congressional award from Nancy Pelosi and SF General Foundation's Heroes and Hearts in 2009 for helping the most number minority male student athletes successfully complete advanced algebra at George Washington High since its inception in 1936. The members also volunteer to mentor Lafayette Elementary School kids on a monthly basis.
Our mission is to inspire predominately minority male high school student athletes to become community leaders that grow in their character by challenging themselves rigorously in math, becoming role models that mentor elementary school kids, and being prepared to complete a college degree with long term career value.
Our vision is that our student athletes will grow in character and conviction to become community leaders who change their hometowns in ways that make social justice a reality.
- AIMS provides a positive environment for children to interact with others, socialize and meet new people
- AIMS is an organization of George Washington High School student/ athletes that encourages students to further their knowledge in math while working with others to solve problems.
- AIMS is a club that provides a foundation for young children, both male and female, to hopefully become community leaders that grow in character and desire to give back.
