Upper School (Grades 9-12)

Mentor Collective

Mentor Collective is a national online mentoring community that matches new Upper School students with a highly qualified recent Friends School alum. Matches are based on common interests, backgrounds, and academics. Friends School is one of many schools partnering with Mentor Collective to provide support within the community through mentorship.

How do I get started?

Together you and your mentor will build the Friends School experience that fits you best--in classes, clubs & activities, and with new friends.

What are the expectations for a Mentor Collective partnership?

Mentorships involve meeting at least once per month via videochat or in person.

      “The Shearwater Mentoring program has given me a chance to connect with alumni to assist me with the process of changing my settings. My mentor, when first meeting her, gave me great advice to help guide my way through my first weeks at Friends.”
