AIMCommunity is a creative arts and mentoring programme in Poole and Bournemouth.  We provide bespoke packages of support for young people aged 8 to 19. At AIM we give young people the experience of being in a band, producing their own music, making their own movies, expressing themselves in performance.  We want each young person who works with us to know that no matter what their level of skill, their creativity is precious.

Starfish our mentoring programme in partnership with Borough of Poole:

AIM Arts Academy is an education programme for young people who are not in school, or who have left school and are now NEET.  We offer the opportunity to learn work related skills, restudy for English, Maths and ICT and gain work experience in the creative industries. and have the support of one-to-one mentors.  This creative education project gives often isolated young people the chance to restart.
