About Bridges at Gilman School
Bridges at Gilman School opened in 2014 with one staff member, Ned Harris, who continues to lead the program. The first summer began with one class of rising fourth graders. Those same students are now tenth graders and younger classes of students have come behind them each year.
Bridges at Gilman currently serves 96 public school students in grades 4-10 and engages about 80 upper school students each year from Gilman School, Bryn Mawr School, and Roland Park Country School. The Gilman School provides in-kind fiscal sponsorship, in-kind year-round facilities, and in-kind back-office support.
Upper School students from Gilman School, Bryn Mawr School, and Roland Park Country School have year-round volunteer opportunities in programs for Bridges’ youngest students:
- Become an After School Tutor: The Bridges Elementary After School Program runs from September to May. Upper School volunteers commit to one season at a time and help guide enrichment activities and provide 1-on-1 homework help to their 4th and 5th grade buddies.
- Become a Summer Counselor: The Bridges Elementary / Middle Summer Institute runs for five weeks in June/July. Volunteer roles for Upper School students last for two weeks and include assisting in the classroom, helping to chaperone field trips, coordinating special activities, and being an overall positive presence at Bridges.
