    What is the GMS Mentoring Program?

    The Gates Millennium Alumni Association prides itself in offering opportunities for our members to civically engage. Two major opportunities are volunteering with our service partner the American Cancer Society, and through our internal mentoring platform powered by Chronus.

    GMS' premier mentoring platform encourages the development of caring and supportive relationships amongst Scholars and Alumni, increasing leadership in action, service to others, academic excellence, and the successful management of networking. The GMS Mentoring Program fosters meaningful relationships that offer a structured path to developing the 4 R's:

     


    Rigor:
    All Scholars need the chance to succeed in challenging coursework.


    Relevance:
    Coursework, projects and other opportunities must spark Scholars' interest and relate clearly to their lives in today's rapidly changing world.


    Relationship:
    All Scholar need seasoned Mentors who know them, look out for them and encourage them to achieve.


    Responsibility:
    All Scholars must learn how to become a positive community and global force by developing strong character, demonstrating integrity and engaging in socially responsible risk-taking.
