1:1 Alumni Mentoring
Smart people seek mentors.
From billionaire businessman Bill Gates to Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg to Academy Award-winning actor Clint Eastwood, many of today’s most successful people credit their achievements to the mentors that guided them.
Gilman’s partnership with Mentor Collective pairs freshmen with alumni, who, through regular video chat and electronic communications and in-person meetings, mentor the boys throughout their Upper School years.
View the video below to hear what some of the boys have to say about their partnerships.

Mentor Collective is a national online mentoring community. Gilman is one of many schools around the country to partner with Mentor Collective in order to empower its community to support the next generation through mentorship.
Mentor Collective matches incoming Gilman students with a Mentor Collective mentor based on common interests, life challenges and academics. Mentors are highly qualified Gilman alumni volunteers.
