Jack Manning Bancroft – CEO and Founder

CEO and a Founder of AIME and Fone Free Feb, Graduate of the University of Sydney and Stanford.

Jack is the CEO and Founder of AIME. In 2005, then a 19-year-old uni student, Jack founded the AIME Program with 25 Indigenous kids in Redfern. AIME incorporated in 2008 and Jack became a CEO at the age of 22.

Over the last four years, back-to-back, AIME students have finished school at almost the same rate as every Australian child. By 2018, AIME will connect with 10,000 Indigenous high school kids annually – that's roughly one quarter of the Indigenous high school population – and have all of these kids finishing school, and transitioning into Uni and employment at the same rate as every Australian child.

Jack is also the CEO and Founder of Fone Free Feb, an initiative launching in 2014 aimed at getting people off their phones to take the time to stop, think and dream and raise money for charity in the process.
