Transforming Hearts
and Minds Utilizing
the Arts to Develop
Emotional Literacy.

OUR INTENTION

Aim 4 The Heart envisions an educational system transformed at its core to recognize the value of "HeArt Education", the purpose of which is to instill emotional literacy through training in the arts. 

 

Through the process of heArt education we help youth examine their purpose and relevance in life. We believe that the most powerful way to positively impact the minds of youth is to first reach them via the heArt, with art being the most effective tool. In a time of tremendous pain and struggle globally, it is through the study of arts and the artist, that we learn our humanity and develop the skills necessary to heal our diverse communities emotionally while uniting them around shared core values and experiences.

OUR HISTORY

In 1996 AIM was incorporated as Assemblies In Motion, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in California. In 2014, AIM officially changed its name to AIM 4 The Heart to reflect over thirty years of creating and implementing a sustainable model of community-based programs designed to positively intervene in the lives of at-promise youth through the Arts.
