Aftercare for Indiana through Mentoring (AIM)

Aftercare for Indiana through Mentoring (AIM) is a non-profit run through Indiana University. Volunteers serve as mentors for incarcerated youth. During the program the youth build connections with their communities to prepare them for their release. Mentors connect youth to services in the community and aid the youth in making post-release plans. The mentor-mentee relationship exists through three phases: the facility, the community, and follow-ups. The mentors are trained and are required to attend additional trainings quarterly. The mentors meet with their youth for at least one hour a week or two hours every other week.
