AIMCentral - a centre for the arts and the wellbeing of young people in Bournemouth. AIMCommunity has been changing lives in Bournemouth and Poole for 8 years and works with up to 500 young people EVERY WEEK, supporting them to 'not just not fail, but flourish and succeed.'
AIMCentral is a unique place. A place where young people can develop their creativity and address the challenges that life has presented them with. Whatever the young persons situation and needs, financial standing or level of school engagement, AIMCentral offers them HOPE, HOME and WHOLENESS.
Through music, art, animation, dance, drama and many other creative pastimes, any young person aged 8 and above can find a new SPARK for life. This amazing centre brings together musicians, artists, dancers, script writers, DJs, rappers, designers, youth workers, teachers and volunteers who care passionately about raising children's aspirations, enabling them to perform higher in all aspects of life and fully reach their potential.
Offering a week round and year round programme, AIMCentral is rapidly becoming a place of connection, opportunity and a fresh start.
With your support, we are looking to:
1- begin a new early morning programme that will offer a creative launch to the day and provide breakfast for those who otherwise may not eat; and
2- offer enhanced learning opportunities for some of the most disconnected in our community.
Unlike many other charities, EVERY £ we generate through our work or through donations goes into direct work with young people. We have no huge overheads, no PR or fundraising department, no company cars, no CEO or executives on huge salaries. We run entirely to put EVERY penny of our income back into changing the lives of young people...YOUR MONEY WILL CHANGE LIVES!
