The Gilman Black Alumni Leadership Institute (GBALI) is a non-academic coeducational leadership program. The foundation of GBALI is the idea that success is defined by more than a career, and that a career is determined by more than academics.

Over the past 13 years, we’ve helped high school students from over 50 schools in the Baltimore area. Our goal is to empower students not only with educational and career choices, but also teach the importance of interpersonal relationships and accountability to oneself and others.



Stay up-to-date with everything going on with GBALI. Here you’ll find all of our policies, absence, and That’s My Jam forms.
