Full-Time Membership: Each AIMS HIGH school has a single full-time Lead AmeriCorps member. Lead members in the AIMS HIGH program play an important role as a point of contact with school teachers, administrators, and AIMS HIGH program staff. While also providing direct service with students, lead members are peer leaders through helping to coordinate other members, programs and activities at their school site. Lead members are not supervisors, but are expected to be a peer model for others. They also support new members through orientation to school and provide guidance to other members throughout their service. More Info + Application
