Australian Story - Turning the Tables (Jack Manning Bancroft)
This program is about a dynamic young indigenous man who's emerged as one of Australia's youngest CEOs. He's Jack Manning Bancroft and he is as comfortable in a hoodie as he is in a suit.
As a seventeen year old Manning Bancroft won a scholarship to prestigious Paul's College at Sydney University. He says he was initially angered by the levels of privilege that he witnessed there.
So he conceived the idea of starting a mentoring program to pair university students with disadvantaged kids for their mutual benefit. It became AIME, the Australian Indigenous Mentoring Experience and it's credited with helping hundreds of disadvantaged kids finish school and go on to university.
It's attracted support and interest from some heavy hitters, including swim legend Ian Thorpe who managed to obtain support from some major corporate players.
