triple j Hottest 100 AIME Partnership

Be a part of closing the gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous students

In the lead-up to the launch of the 2015 Hottest 100, triple j has announced a new partnership with the Australian Indigenous Mentoring Experience (AIME).

RMIT works with AIME to partner university student volunteers in one-on-one mentoring with a high school Indigenous student. AIME is a fantastic mentoring program proven to support Indigenous students through high school and into university, training and employment at the same rate as every Australian child – effectively closing the gap in educational outcomes. Last year 93 per cent of AIME's Year 12 students completed school, exceeding Australia’s non-Indigenous rate of 87 per cent and the national Indigenous rate of 59 per cent.

You’ll have the option to make a donation after voting in the Hottest 100. You can also raise money through a gold coin donation at your Hottest 100 party. Plus you can donate to AIME anytime throughout the Hottest 100 voting period. Your donation will help AIME reach 10,000 Indigenous students by 2018.

Hottest 100 voting has opened, so start thinking about which songs you loved in 2015.

If you like the work AIME is doing, whether you’re an higher education or vocational education student, get involved by becoming an AIME mentor. No skills or experience needed – you just need to be yourself!
